What is a job role?


A job role is a particular task that a Rail Industry Worker can demonstrate they have the competency to perform in the rail industry. 


A job role usually contains a number of competency, rail health (medical) assessment, drug or alcohol test pass requirements, which have been determined by the National Rail Industry Worker Matrices Committee, Network Operators, Principal Contractors, Premium Functionality Employers and subject matter experts. 


Job roles are detailed in the applicable RIW Matrix. For more information, please refer to What are the RIW Matrices and how were they developed?  


Job roles can be added to a Rail Industry Worker profile to demonstrate a worker is competent to perform a role. If a worker does not have the required job role, they may not be permitted to work on a site in that capacity. Job roles can be categorised as National, Network or Employer. 


  • National – a job role that is nationally recognised, such as Around the Track Personnel.
  • Network – a job role that is specific to a network, such as MTM- Handsignaller, ARTC – Track Force Protection Coordinator or V/Line – Operator.
  • Employer – a job role that is specific to a Premium Functionality Employer. Employer-based job roles can only be created and assigned by Premium Functionality Employers.


To fulfil the requirements of a job role, a cardholder must be able to demonstrate they hold the correct competencies, requirements, such as a rail health (medical) assessment or drug/alcohol test pass, or that the job role has had an assessment performed by an approved Assessor.

What job roles will a cardholder require to access a site?


The requirements to enter a site will depend on the Network a cardholder is accessing, and the requirements of the Contractor in Charge if applicable. It is advised that Employers and/or cardholders check with the individual Network and/or Contractor in Charge to determine the required job roles and/or competencies required for site entry. 


You can find the contact details of all Network Operators on the RIW website here, and a list of Contractors In Charge and their Project sites here.

How can a company add job roles to multiple people?


This article details how a company can add job roles to more than one cardholder simultaneously.  This function is also known as a bulk award.


Note: Job roles can only be awarded to a cardholder where the cardholder has a primary, secondary or approved associated relationship with the company.  It cannot be used for cardholders who are associated via a swipe relationship.



This instruction applies to the following RIW System User Roles:

  • Advanced Project Admin
  • Employer Admin

Go to https://app.riw.net.au and login using your credentials. 


Step 2: Add Job Roles to Multiple People shortcut

Step 3: Search for cardholders

Complete the search criteria fields to find the cardholders individually, or click on Search (with no fields entered) and the entire workforce will be surfaced.  




Using more search criteria will narrow down the search and return fewer, more relevant results.


Step 4: Choose cardholders

Repeat this step until all the cardholders that are to be awarded the job role appear in the Selected People box.

The job role has now been applied to the cardholders.

How does a company search for a cardholder suitable for a job role?



This article describes how you can search for a cardholder that has a relationship with your organisation that will be suitable for a specific job role.  This allows RIW System Users to interrogate the competencies and experience that is already within their organisation.



This instruction applies to the following RIW System User Roles:

  • Employer Admin 
  • Employer Admin - No Payment
  • Employer Admin - Read Only 

Step 1: Login into the RIW System

Go to https://app.riw.net.au and login using your credentials.


Step 2: Search for People Suitable for a Job Role 

Click on the People tab and then the Search for People Suitable For a Job Role shortcut.




Step 3: Set search criteria

On the Search for People Suitable for Job Role screen, use the search criteria to search for cardholders in the RIW System who have competencies matching or close to those required for a particular job role.  Start typing the name of the required job role in the Job Role field and this will present a drop down list of configured job roles.


You can then define the Min Competency Gap Size (minimum) and Max Competency Gap Size (maximum). If either of these are set to 0 (zero), then only perfect job role matches will be returned.  For example, you could set the minimum competency gap as 0, and the maximum competency gap as 2.  The results would then return all cardholders who hold an exact match, and then cardholders who have up to one or two competency gaps missing to fulfill the job role.


You can also specify those who Currently Holds Role, or those that MUST hold a particular Competency (start typing in the competency box to surface a list of competencies). 


The last search toggle is cardholder Relationship; Primary, Secondary or Associated.


Once all search fields have been filled, click on the Search button.



Step 4: Interrogate search results

The search results will then be displayed, which can be adjusted as required by toggling the fields and clicking Search again. In the below example, a number of cardholders were surfaced identifying competency gap matches of 1, and the competencies that will be required to fulfill the job role.  



The table displays cardholder details, the competency gap size, if they currently hold the role, valid competencies, missing or invalid competencies, and primary/secondary/associated company name.  RIW System Users can drag and drop the columns to reorder them as required.


Step 5: Export Results


Note: searches across large number of cardholders, or against job roles with a large number of competency groups, may need to be performed in the background using the Export option.


If the results need to be exported for further interrogation, click on the Export button.  The report will run in the background and be emailed to the logged in RIW System User.

This instruction applies to the following user roles:

  • Advanced Project Admin
  • Employer Admin
  • Employer Admin - No Payment
  • Employer Admin - Read Only

Included in the dialogue box is the Next Key Expiry Date and the associated Next Key Expiry Item

This information will allow you to take any action required to maintain the job role validity for the RIW cardholder.



If the Next Key Expiry Date is in the past, and the job role is required by the cardholder, remedial action, such as a new medical assessment or updating a competency can be put in place, depending on the Next Key Expiry Item in question.




To undertake a more thorough analysis of job role validity for your workforce, consider running the Next Key Expiry Report For Valid Job Roles report.
