University Job Classification (UFO)

Your job profile, the level of your position and your salary scale are determined in observance of the rules of the 'University Job Classification' (UFO) system. This system contains job profiles of academic support positions. The differentiating factors coupled with the profiles illustrate the difference in job grade between positions. At the same time this leads to better insight into career paths, both horizontally and vertically.

An explanation of the UFO system, the steps of the classification process and information on which legal rules apply can be found in the UFO Manual.

The classification tool is the national tool used to search for UFO profiles within the UFO system. The dean or department director determines the classification of your job profile.

The UFO system is updated regularly in accordance with the latest developments within the universities. UFO version 6.0 is currently in effect. The most recent positions and job classifications are listed in the job level matrix.

You can view your own job classification through the MY-UFO web application.
