With over 20 years’ experience in delivering recruiting solutions, the team at Careerz have supported a wide range of SMEs recruiting talent across technology, marketing, sales, finance, HR and support roles. Careerz are always happy to support you with feedback and further scrutiny of any role you are seeking to fill.

Delivering successful recruiting solutions starts with clearly analysing and defining the specific requirements for the role. Without spending sufficient time on understanding which skills and experience will make a difference in the role, businesses are potentially in danger of appointing an individual who may appear to have excellent industry relevant experience, but is less relevant to the business and job requirements. In some cases, this may then lead to frustration and disappointment both on the part of SME and the employee, where they realise that the fit for role is not as suitable as had been anticipated.

The sample Job Description Templates below are given to illustrate the type of information we suggest a business may share with candidates, and subsequently scrutinise when recruiting for the target role, effectively reviewing against the actual requirements they wish the individual to fulfil. Applying due diligence to the process of creating an appropriate job description should include taking feedback from the line manager and team members. This is likely to result in a much more suitable Job Description and give confidence for the employer that the recruiting solution will target the right skills and experience. It will also provide the candidate with a better opportunity to identify a role which more accurately fits their experience and future employment targets. 

The job description should start with a title and summary or purpose, to provide an overview for the role, introducing the brand to the candidate and stimulating their interest in the company and role. It is important to avoid jargon, and ensure the information is clear and precise. 

Responsibilities and Duties should be listed concisely, whilst ensuring any key specific requirements are listed, such as experience within particular fields or in using specific tools relevant to the job.  Within reason, day to day responsibilities as well as overall reporting requirements should be listed, to develop understanding of what the successful candidate can expect when fulfilling the role. The aim is to enable candidates to identify whether or not they are qualified for the role, and whether the environment and organisation will be a good fit for them. 

Qualifications and skills required should be concise and include both technical skills as well as soft skills, such as communication, and decision making, where relevant. It is important to be realistic, as listing too many qualifications and skills can lead to potentially strong candidates ruling themselves out, as they do not feel they meet an individual criterion listed, which in reality is not essential. This is an area in which input from line managers for the role can be particularly useful when creating the job description. It may also prove beneficial to separate skills out under essential and desirable headings.
