In Ukraine, employee job titles should be named exclusively in accordance with the national classifier DK 003:2010 "Classifier of Professions".

The Order of the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine No. 1410 dated 16 January 2024 approved amendments to this Classifier, which complement the list of professions in accordance with the current demands of employers operating in international markets.

Key changes

  • The Classifier of Professions has been updated with 42 new professional job titles, including 29 in the IT sector.
  • Some professional job titles in the IT sector have been abolished (in particular, computer communications analyst, software and multimedia analyst, applied programmer, system programmer, software development and testing specialist, etc.).
  • Some professional job titles in the IT sector have been brought into line with the generally accepted English-language titles (in particular, the position of "computer data bank analyst" has been changed to "data analyst", the position of "computer software engineer" to "software engineer", etc.).
  • We recommend that employers, especially those in the IT sector, consider the above changes when hiring new employees and developing relevant internal documentation, and bring the job titles of existing employees in line with the updated Classifier of Professions.
