Introduction

Strand C Investigating job roles and working arrangements Job Roles Define the term 'job role' A 'job role' is what the worker has to do in his or her job for example their responsibilities that the business expects you to fulfil while you re in your job. It refers to their behaviours, rights and obligations in their job; it also is your power as a worker. Your job roles will change according to what jobs they are in, if you change job then your job roles will also change. A job role describes the role of the job it does describe the person who works in that job. One persons job role may include more responsibility than another job this may be because they are higher up in the business hierarchy than the other person. How are job roles defined in a business? Relate to Organisational charts and job descriptions. Each job role will have a specific job description, which outlines all the key responsibilities and duties that the person holding that position will have. For example, a teachers job description lists their role as a tutor, subject teacher, any additional management responsibilities, duty to write reports, attend parents evening and any other duty as required by the head teacher. This would be the hierarchy that is used in a school: In a company there is normally 4 main layers, these layers are directors, managers, supervisors and operatives. Although on the chart it says that managing directors are at the top of the business there should be the shareholders there this is because the shareholders decide how they want the business to be run. If the business is not how the shareholders want it then the business will start to fail because the business will not have the support that they needed. Each of these boxes may represent more than one person for example if the finance manager is working in a bank then the bank will need loads more than one accounts supervisors because obviously they will need lots of people working in the finance department. ...read more.

Conclusion

If the employee is in the workplace then one they are not getting to spend time with their children but also they have to pay for somebody else to look after their kids. So if they are working at home then they only have to pay someone to look after their kids when they are in work. What are the effects of these changes on employers? These working arrangements benefit the employers as in a lot of cases they can save money by using these. For example if a company uses financial flexibility, they can pay an external company to do the work they need for cheaper than they can do it themselves. This often happens in other countries because the minimum wage in other countries is much lower so if thy get these people to do it then they have to pay out a lot less than they would have in the UK. Also people in other countries will work a lot harder than they do in this country because they are all struggling for money, they work a lot harder because they need to support their families. Another example when these working arrangements may be good for the employers is when they have a zero hour contract then they are only paying for them to come in to work when they are needed. This is very much like the job sharing contract as again they are paying only the people they need even if it not what their job role specified in their contract.
