  • Job Description

    A basic written statement that describes the tasks, role, scope, working conditions, rate of pay and responsibilities of a job. Job descriptions are commonly posted on job listings to promote the opening of a new position. More detailed descriptions are often found in employment agreements.

    The purpose of a job description is to give candidates a clear idea of what they can expect from the job and to save the business time (and money) by only attracting candidates who have the right skills, experience and qualifications.

    Job descriptions often need updating to coincide with changes to the organisation, new technology and the responsibilities of the role itself.
