How to write a good job description

Are you ready to hire your first employee? Congratulations! It’s an exciting time, but don’t rush into posting the job listing. Your job description deserves careful attention.

Components of a good job description

A good job description will give prospective employees a clear idea of what you’re looking for, and will attract people you have in mind. A bad job description, on the other hand, can lead to confusion and wasted time.

Here are some of the key features to have in mind when writing a good job description:

  • Job Title
  • Job Purpose
  • Duties & Responsibilities
  • Relationships & Roles
  • Qualifications/Requirements
  • Job Location
  • Salary/Wage
  • Hours & Days of Work
  • Equipment to Be Used

Take some time to enter in as much info as you can in each of these sections. You can build on these elements if you like – they are key in creating a strong foundation to work from.
