There are many ways to describe the main tasks of a job. Some organisations refer to them as Key Results Areas/Key Performance Areas etc.
In general the key responsibility areas/main tasks describes what work is performed in a job eg Staff selection with it's sub tasks eg short listing, interviewing, assesments etc.
The difference between a job description and job profile is the reference to the outcomes and performance criteria. That is when they use Key Performance Areas/Results with the criteria ( referred to as Key Performance Indicators=KPIs). An example = All candidates are short listed with the KPI as all candidates CVS evaluated according to position requirements and within 14 hours after closing date of advertisement.
Hope this helps
