Scouting Professional Job Profiles and Salary Ranges

Written by William Fisher, Talent Management

Job ProfileTo support consistency and mobility across our councils, job profiles were developed to replace individual job descriptions. By design, the job profiles are generic outlines of Scouting work, not meant to capture each task. Standardizing work across our councils ensures that each professional gains the skills and experiences and applies the knowledge appropriate to the job they are doing while preparing them for future opportunities.

Note that performance goals, competencies, and objectives that are required of the individual for a performance period should be established in the Performance and Development System (PDS).

How to Find Your Job Profile Title and Grade

First, log on to PDS to find what Job Profile and Grade you are in. Here’s how:

  • Log on to MyBSA; click Resources. Then under Human Resources find Performance and Development System (PDS). Click on your Talent Profile; click on Current Position and Organization. Current Position/Job Info shows your Job Profile Title and Salary Grade.

Second, close PDS and move to Human Resources Administration to find your Job Profile. Here’s how:

  • Minimize or log out of PDS once you know your Job Profile title and grade. Go back to the Human Resources section of MyBSA and click on Human Resources Administration. Scroll down to Job Families and Job Profiles. Each category of work is organized into a Job Family. Find the Commissioned and Certified Professionals Job Family, which has all the professional jobs in Scouting. Click on the Career Path at the top to see a listing of all jobs in that family. Go back and click on the Job Profile that you are in. Note: Use the Job Essential Functions on your Job Profile to help you with your Essential Function goal in PDS.

Third, find out the salary range for your grade and location. Here’s how:

  • Click out of Job Families and Job Profiles, and go up to Human Resources Administration. Scroll to Geographical Locations and find the geography your council location is in. This is important so that you know what salary range applies to you.
  • Next, go back to Local Council Salary Ranges. Find your grade and the applicable salary range for your location.

Completing these steps shows you where to find information about yourself. (Managers can follow the steps to locate information about employees.) Reviewing the Career Path allows you to see all of the jobs you can aspire toward and helps as a development tool.

Likewise, local council employees can follow the same process and find a brief description of their job in the Local Council Staff Job Summaries.

Assistance with these tools and guidance for your career is available through the National Human Resources Placement and Compensation teams.
