A job here is defined as an occupation in a sector. The two concepts of occupation and sector correspond to two fundamental dimensions of the division of labour within and across organisations. The sector classification designates the horizontal distribution of economic activities across organisations generating different products and services. The occupation classification provides an implicit hierarchy of within-organisation roles– senior managers, line managers, professionals, associate professionals, production staff and so on.
