Job Descriptions

Each role in Hunter Adams comes with a job description outlining the accountabilities and deliverables held in the role and the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to be successful in each role.

Competency Framework

Each role description is backed up by a technical competency framework. These frameworks outline in detail the knowledge and experience required for each role, at all levels. This provides clarity on the exposure and experience required to be successful in your current role, and in all roles across the Hunter Adams career tree.

Lominger Profiles

With the technical aspects of our roles covered by our competency frameworks, we use Lominger profiles to cover personal skills and working styles. This helps our consultants understand where their natural strengths are and where they will have to put in extra energy to succeed. We look at technical and personal profiles regularly to ensure our team are given the right support for the client work they are assigned.
