What is a job description?

A job description sets out the purpose of a job, where the job fits into the organisation structure, the main accountabilities and responsibilities of the job and the key tasks to be performed.

Why is a job description important?

A job description has four main uses:

Organisation - it defines where the job is positioned in the organisation structure. Who reports to who.

Recruitment - it provides essential information to potential recruits (and the recruiting team) so that they can determine the right kind of person to do the job (see person specification)
