What is Required in a Job Description


A good job description will be crucial when it comes to attracting the right candidates. In addition, you must convey to the possible candidates (and the specialized search and selection consultant) clearly the requirements of the position.

Therefore, any information that highlights your company from others: international expansion, new lines of business, awards, an attractive business culture, will be beneficial to the search process.

Whether it's a replacement hiring or a newly created position, the specific details of the position and functions will be clearly highlighted in order to identify the most suitable candidate. The search process will be agile and the interest of the most suitable professionals for the position will be guaranteed if this criterion is followed when describing the position to be filled.

Essential and Required Job Description Elements:

1. Job title - ask your consultant if the title "sells" the position effectively

2. Area / department - describe the role of the area within the company

3. Key information about the company, including corporate culture and professional progression
