Job Functions are very similar to Disciplines, but can be multi-discipline. For example, Graduate Jobs, Account Manager jobs, etc.
Why use Job Functions?
It gives you a greater ability to create extra references for your jobs, which means it's easier for users of your job search to filter down the right job for them.
