Understanding SFIA

SFIA is a unique skills management tool that provides a common language and structure for defining the professional skills required for roles in the digital world. It helps organisations recruit and retain top talent, as well as providing individuals with a clear roadmap for career development.

The structure of SFIA consists of seven levels of responsibility which enable recognition of career progression and provide a means for existing corporate structures to map against it. The framework also outlines descriptions for more than 120 specific professional skills, broken down across each relevant level of responsibility.
