Job description (EH003)

Use this document to create a job description. This document can be used when recruiting staff, to assist you when conducting a staff appraisal, to attach to an employment contract or statement of terms/written particulars of terms or in order to update a previously drafted job description. This document creates three separate lists containing the duties and/or responsibilities of the role, the skills and knowledge required to perform it and required experience. There is also the option to insert an estimate of the percentage of time taken up by each responsibility or duty. The law requires an employer to provide an employee, within two months of the commencement of a job, a statement of a job description. It is also advisable for you to provide each employee with a job description as it allows you to define the employee's role and accountability and clarifies the expectations for both parties.
