HR job discription

HR job discription

Oops a bit of a spelling problem. Don`t forget that it is spelt job description!    Don`t worry we`ve all done it!

There are headings for each job description:


1] Job Summary

Provides a short paragraph about what the job entails


2] Main Responsibilities

The main duties and tasks required to be undertaken.  Sometimes this section is known as "job duties"


3] Knowledge, Skills and Abilities

What sorts of knowledge and experience and experience and qualifications are required of a member of staff to undertake this sort of role?


It is however not just those who are new to HR who need help, these JD`s will be useful to those who may be considering a career which leads to the very top


Our sample HR job descriptions are for specialist jobs which often sit within HR like Communications or Health and Safety roles, and for specialist HR jobs like OD, Employee Relations, Change, Diversity etc


Human Resources jobs remain incredibly popular but it is difficult for those with no HR experience to understand what the different positions actually do, perhaps a bit of a `black art`.    

There are many reasons for needing to check out job descriptions for different jobs.  


You may be an employer who needs to write a jd quickly and doesn`t know where to start.  From experience it is useful to have something which acts as a starting point.  In many cases on this site you will find several descriptions for a particular job and you can then compare them and perhaps use a little of each one to compile the jd.


Perhaps you work for a job agency who needs to better understand a job for which you may be taking a brief.  let`s face it, however experienced you are there is always a new job title/position which is a bit unfamiliar and needs checking.


Sometimes it is very difficult to get a feel for exactly what tasks are required to be undertaken in a job.  This is a good place to start and the volume of job descriptions in different types of roles can assist with career choice.
