Designation is post or rank of a person in the organization with respect to grade or scale
Position is the duties of the person in that particular organization
Job title mentions your in which department. like (Administration/Sales/Management/Marketing/etc..)
this is up to my knowledge.
In my last job/position, I worked for the government. The only difference was in Position as it designated where I was in the organisation.
Job Title - Administration Officer Grade 3 - that was on the Position Description
Position - Administration Officer Grade 3 - xxxx Division - also on the Position Description
Designation - Administration Officer Grade 3 - and that was what was on my Payslip
The "unofficial" job title was Executive Assistant.
Sound like another one of those things where people get hung up on meaningless job titles to try and give themselves imaginary status.
JOB describes common skill set Ex.Manager, Executive, Supervisor etc....
POSITION describes specific skill set Ex. HR manager,Production manager, Quality manager, Finance manager, Sales manager etc...
DESIGNATION also specifies a specific position or rank in the organization strecture
