Don't have a job description

Just went through evaluations, and pointed out that I don't have a job description on file.

I originally applied for a manager position, but was offered the Director position. So I've been operating as it were under the wrong job description. We have a manager, and she's doing a great job as manager. I'm held to the same job description (technically) but had different items on my evaluation.

I now have a new direct boss. I want to approach him with this issue. I also want to have a solution to this problem, like a draft, to present to the new boss. So does anyone out there have a Director position, smaller town in a growing metro area, job description that they can share?


PM me for more info.

I wish I had kept my last one - shoot

I would start by going through your to-do list and your current project list and create an outline -

also, keep a time sheet on an excel sheet to see where your time goes for a full month and you can graph it

like:

front counter help
phone call assistance
office management/admin - filing, copying kind of thing
planning board member management
planning board reports, reviews, meetings
(then do the same for all other committees, boards, commissions)
meetings with upper management
meetings with chief elected officials
meetings with other departments on their projects
Project X
Project Y
Project Z

it's great to see where your time goes and then you can also see what dominates to create a job description for yourself

I just drafted a rewrite of my own job description.
Here was the outline I was given -

DUTIES
JOB REQUIREMENTS
DIFFICULTY OF WORK
RESPONSIBILITY
PERSONAL WORK RELATIONSHIPS
PHYSICAL DEMANDS AND WORKING ENVIRONMENT
