Need a way to give users multiple Job Roles

I need a way to be able to assign multiple job roles in Wrike to each user. We have many situations where 2 users are both qualified to do 1 task but the next task only 1 of them is. An example of this is a supervisor of a group is able to do the same tasks as their subordinates but the subordinate can not do all of the same tasks as the supervisor. Being only able to assign a user a single role is making it difficult for us to set up blue prints correctly.

We are also interested in this as we have people with different skill sets that we want to be able to assign to different aspects of our projects. Whilst being able to see if that specialty is overloaded.

I require this feature also please.  We need to assign jobs for animation, logo design, graphics etc that Creatives are often multi-skilled at. 

Ideally you could extend this feature such that you could assign skill levels also; so if I'm looking at my resourcing, I could see that 3 people could all do logo design however I'd prefer to use the resource that has 3 stars than 2.  Quick mockup

I was looking at using Wrike over Asana for this feature, but now that I've learnt about not having multiple roles this feature is actually of next to no use to me unfortunately.  Back to the drawing board...

This is something our team needs as well. We bill at different rates for different types of work and one person may be doing both. We need to know how many hours are being spent in each of those types to calculate billing. We use categories in the timelog as well however, I have not found a way to allocate rates there either.
