Writing the Perfect Job Description
In essence, a great job description showcases your role to the potential candidates looking for a role.
A good job description will also focus your attention (and your recruiters) on what is really needed in the role. Whether it is a replacement hire or a newly created position, the nuances of a particular role will be clearly highlighted and provide a clear set of objectives to identify the most suitable candidate. Done well, the job description will save time, ensuring you see only the most relevant professionals.
Job description essentials:
Job title - ask your consultant if your role title effectively sells the position
Department - outline how your team fits in with the wider organization
Key summary on your company, including a line on culture and career progression
Reporting lines - who are the direct reports and any 'dotted line' reports
Specific key responsibilities - describe in detail, but write them in an engaging way
Length of employment (i.e. is this going to be a permanent or contract position)
Work experience/background - remember to differentiate what's essential and what's ideal.
