Job function: A code assigned by our analysts which categorises the individual's primary work function. We have 41 categories of job function. Examples include "Purchasing & Procurement", "Communications", "Human Resources", "Property Maintenance & Management" and more.
It is important to distinguish between our Activity code and our Industry code. The industry code is what the organisation does; the activity is what the individual does. For instance, an Accountant Manager in a hospital would have the activity code "Finance" and the industry "Health Services".
