Job Descriptions

The first critical step in successful recruitment is to clearly define the role and the skills, knowledge and experience required. The job description helps potential applicants to self-assess against the demands of the job. It can help attract the right people by presenting the benefits of the job and the organisation. Well defined job requirements also shape cost effective assessment strategies and ensure that the best person is selected. Subsequent to recruitment, the job description forms part of the employment contract and is a vital tool in performance management. Quality job descriptions contribute to role clarity and effective teamwork. The failure to critically review and update job descriptions can adversely affect recruitment outcomes.
