is there a word

At my job, there are a pool of people who do basically the same thing. If I am sick one day, my coworkers cover my classes, or a temp is brought in.

At my best friend's job, she is the only person who does and can do her job. If she is sick, her entire schedule has to be postponed.

Is there a word, in English or otherwise, to describe the difference between the two jobs? I know words like 'replaceable' etc. but I wonder if there's a word that has no other connotation. Maybe a new, specifically career-oriented phrase?
