Illuminate uses a classification model based on the complexity of different positions. Jobs are grouped into Individual Contributor A, Individual Contributor B and People Managers, each with a Generic Factor chart outlining a level definition and the skills and knowledge required. Jobs that involve work of a similar nature have been grouped in broad Functions and Job Families. The Job Families themselves have been written in a Job Family Matrix. Each Job Family Matrix has one generic primary function and then outlines a general descriptor plus typical education and experience required to operate at each level. Promotion is based upon organisational need and possession of required skills, knowledge and experience etc.
