Benchmark Job

[ˈbɛn(t)ʃmɑrk | dʒɑb]

A benchmark job refers to a defined job position found within the workplace, for which legal, other commitments and the pay stays consistent across the field, and can be used to make job comparisons and make job evaluations.

In a similar manner to benchmarking for an organization; a benchmark job is a common role in the workforce for which salary and other data are readily available. Employers are able to use this to evaluate an employee’s salary consistency and responsibility; employees can also use it to negotiate a salary for a new position.
