Over the last 12 months, I have had two performance conversations and both have had the same outcome - my employer is satisfied with my performance. My current title is Senior Analyst and our team recently hired a Manager. Part of my scorecard is to assist in the development of the Manager.
In addition, my responsibilities have expanded markedly and now include P&L responsibility (40% of my scorecard). I've discussed my title with my employer and stated that I believe I'm also worthy of a Manager title. My employer agrees and both my boss and his one up have told me that I can change my title to Manager.
The problem is that they can't change my title on our official HR records as "there is no generic job description". I work for a very large financial firm in Australia with well established and formal HR procedures that was the apparent response given from the HR department. I am at a loss as to what I should do.
Should I change my title knowing that this will not align with official HR records? I am concerned that this may have longer term ramifications with future employment checks e.g. my CV says I am a manager yet the official employment check says otherwise.
Should I get an email from my boss confirming that I can officially change my title?
Should I wait and see how things go?
I am concerned that I am losing valuable "management" experience on my CV considering that I have had managerial responsibilities for 12 months yet it doesn't appear that my title will change in the next 6 months
