The above contains the main outline of duties. However, in an organisation such as this, it is inevitable that tasks may arise which do not fall within the remit of the above list of Key Tasks. Employees are therefore required to respond with a flexible approach when tasks arise which are not specifically covered in their job profile. Should an additional responsibility become a regular part of an employee’s job, the Job Profile will be amended to include this.
