55 page Manual. While there are undoubtedly more academic ways to develop and write job descriptions, the approach detailed in this manual will result in practical, realistic and accountable documents that can be clearly understood by everyone from senior management to the shop floor.

Many workplace positions have job descriptions and job specifications, however, two factors have become evident:

Firstly, a large number of managers and supervisors who are required at various times to write job descriptions for staff positions, frequently lack knowledge of the correct method of developing and writing these documents. This often results in the scanning of other job descriptions and job specifications to ascertain the content and format, even though these may have been developed in an unsatisfactory format or in an incorrect manner.

Secondly, there appears to be confusion surrounding the terms ‘job description’ and ‘job specification’. A Job Description addresses the duties and responsibilities pertaining to the job. A Job Specification is concerned with human resources – the human qualities and skills required for the job.

To eliminate the confusion between job descriptions and job specifications, the latter is referred to in this manual as job (person) specifications.

This manual provides a practical three-stage approach:

  • Conducting a job analysis
  • Developing a job description
  • Developing a job (person) specification.
