A Job and Person Specification is a formal outline of a position. It describes the location of the position within the business unit, the function and purpose of the position, and the expected outcomes associated with it.
A Job and Person Specification also lists those attributes and qualifications that an individual must have to enable them to achieve the outcomes of the position. A good practice is to ensure Job and Person Specifications are kept up to date and all amendments and changes are recorded, dated and agreed to by all parties as required.
Please note that this is a guide and example only. Further information about recruitment processes in your agency should be sought from your Human Resources team.
