If the vacancy is for a new position, the recruiting manager will need to write a job description. The link HR Manager will be able to provide advice and guidance with this. (See Guidance to writing job descriptions)
All new job descriptions, and job descriptions that have been significantly changed will need to be reviewed and graded as appropriate by the Grading Review panel before being advertised. ( Grading Review Panel dates )
The person specification is of equal importance to the job description. The person specification forms the basis of the selection decision and enables the selection panel to ensure objectivity in their selection.

It will form the basis for the advert, along with the JD, and candidates will be shortlisted and interviewed against these criterion so it is essential they accurately reflect the skills and experience required of the role.
