Based on the 2017 second edition of Records and Information Management Core Competencies and the information governance (IG) DACUM chart, this publication is a guide for creating effective information management (IM) job descriptions at four levels – from entry to executive – as well as IG job descriptions for professionals with the requisite knowledge and skills. It includes descriptions for these positions (with alternate titles in parentheses):

IM Level 1
Information Clerk (Records Clerk, Administrative Assistant, File Clerk)
Information Technician (Imaging Technician)
Senior Information Clerk (Senior Records Clerk, Senior Administrative Assistant, Senior File Clerk)

IM Level 2

Information Coordinator / Information Specialist (Information Technologist)

IM Level 3
ERM Administrator/ERM Architect (Project Manager)
Information Management Supervisor (Records Management Supervisor)
Information Management Manager (Records Manager, Senior Information Management Supervisor, Imaging Manager)

IM Level 4
Information Management Director (Records Management Director, Chief Records Officer)

IG Positions
Information Governance Associate Director (Information Governance Assistant Director, Advisor, or Analyst)
Information Governance Director (Vice President of Information Governance)
Chief Information Governance Officer (Vice President of Information Governance)

The emergence of IG in the decade since the previous edition of this book was published drove the addition of IG job descriptions and increased the depth and breadth of knowledge and skills required to:

  1. Meet significantly more challenging technology issues
  2. Assume a more proactive and collaborative role to ensure a strong IM foundation for the IG program

For each of the 13 "typical" jobs, this book describes the:

  • General function of the position
  • Education and experience recommended
  • Relevant certifications and certificates
  • Career mobility
  • Core competencies – tasks, knowledge, and skills – required in each of six domains (Business Functions, RIM Practices, Risk Management, Communications and Marketing, Information Technology, and Leadership)

Because organizations often combine positions or tailor job descriptions to the specific activities required, purchasers of this PDF will receive a zip file that also includes an editable Word version of this publication. This editable version provides the job description information in a “pick list” type of format that will enables users to customize the descriptions to the specific requirements of their organizations.
