Being able to hire your first employee is a big milestone in a small business. But before you jump in, consider the job description.
Why is a job description important?
A good job description gives prospective hires a clear idea of what you’re looking for, and will attract people you have in mind. On the other hand, a poorly-written job description can lead to confusion and wasted time – for both you and the prospective hire.
What goes into a job description?
When you write a job description, include the following information. Take the time to sit down and enter in as much info as you can in each of these sections. You can build upon these features if you like. They’re key in creating a strong foundation to work from.
- Job Title
- Job Purpose
- Duties & Responsibilities
- Relationships & Roles
- Job Location
- Hours & Days of Work
- Equipment to Be Used
