Position/Job Descriptions & Person Specifications

Job Descriptions

Job descriptions and person specifications are formal documents that accurately detail the duties and responsibilities of a role and the type of person needed to fulfill the role.

Fine tuning your job descriptions before you seek to employ someone new means you will attract the right people with the right skills and experience from the outset. 

In New Zealand it is a requirement that there is some form of written information describing what an employee’s role is.  Whist developing these documents may seem like an onerous task, the benefit can certainly pay off for your business.

Having a formalised position document is the bones to developing great staff and boosting retention.

Person Specifications

Person specifications outline what is required of a person to fulfill a job. What qualifications do they need, experience, skills etc. As potential employees know themselves best, they will be able to identify if they have the capabilities to be successful.
