If you want an HR text book this book is probably not for you. If you want a unique insight into some of the weird and wonderful true stories that happened during a twenty year career in Human Resources it is.
Oops, you probably found this page by using the spelling of `job discription` rather than job description, an easy mistake to make, we`ve all done it! Anyway if you were after some jd samples, you have arrived at the best website on the internet. Our site contains more free sample job discriptions than any where else.
If you look at the red buttons to the right, they each contain a job discription for a variety of positions. They are only a small fraction of the samples on this site, and what is best that they are all free, and they all relate to actual jd`s, not theoretical jd`s.
free-job-descriptions.com provides a free database of real job descriptions for use in writing jd`s, recruitment and job search.
Check out the A-Z of jobs on this page below
Sample job discription
There are normally three headings for each job description:
1] Job Summary
This heading 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 qualifications are required of a member of staff to undertake this sort of role?
These jd`s are drawn from every type of occupation including IT, Medical, Management, Sales, Accountancy, Executive, Marketing and many, many others. They are for real jobs.
There are literally 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.
A good example for this is the position of receptionist, the most searched for jd on the internet. There are at least 10 reception jd`s on this site.
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.
Other categories of people who use this site are job seekers and students, both of whom who wish to understand more about what a job entails.
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.
We have two recommended ways to use this site:
1] BROWSE THE SITE
There are some ready made groupings of jobs on the top left of the page in the menu. There you will find sample job discriptions for `Management`, `Executive`, IT, Medical, Sales etc. These will be for all types of jobs within these groupinds from senior to junior.
Alternatively if you know which letter your required jd starts with you can browse the A-Z which is in the blue panel below the menu. Just choose a letter and pitch in.
2] SEARCH FUNCTION
At the top left of the website you will find the search function. All that you have to do is click on it and make a search. Be advised that the search may take you out of the website
