The Job Description can be used for a variety of purposes, including:
- Resourcing and Selection processes – Remember, questions at interview must be based upon the job description so thinking ahead to the interview is useful when constructing a description.
- Job Sizing applications
- Clarification of roles and responsibilities - Think carefully, and realistically, about the duties the employee will perform.
- Developing and reviewing of performance - Have you included criteria you will be able to measure performance against?
