A Job Description is a summary of the key responsibilities of a job, for a specific employee or group of employees. It includes the general nature of the work performed, the level of the work performed, the skills and knowledge required for competent performance of the job and other elements. A job description describes and focuses on the job itself and not on any specific individual who might fill the job.
The Compensation unit has created detailed information that will help you create job descriptions. You can find this guidance in Chapter 3 of our Guide to Managing Human Resources:
- Creating Job Descriptions for non-represented employees
- Creating Job Descriptions for represented employees
