Job vacancies

Tuesday, June 30, 2015


Vacancy descriptions are a detailed account; put together by management or the particular department, of the entire duties, responsibilities and qualifications of that particular vacancy you are recruiting for.

Remember that when you are writing your job description, you are also writing in detail about your company and also advertising it. Therefore, it needs to be communicated clearly and concisely because the best and most effective job descriptions give people a sense of what it’s like to be a part of the company.

Personality and culture should either be directly described or be reflected in the structure and wording of the description. You should effectively explain the need for that particular position in your company and the exact duty that particular position will take up.


Know The Job

You need to know what you are looking for in order not to cause disaster for your company. You need to have a clear idea of the purpose of the role, how the role aligns with your organization’s strategic objectives, and what the role entails.

 This is vital in setting up the proper expectations of your future employee and ensuring that the employment relationship is off to a good start. One of the worst things a recruiter or hiring manager can do is lie on a job description or make a fundamental error on the job expectations. It damages the employer brand and ends up badly for everyone.


Know Your Audience

In order to get the attention of  a well talented person, you should arrange your job description in a compelling way to attract them. To do that, you should be able to identify and know the kind of people you want to target, that is, your target audience. You should also be aware of the demographic group you are talking to and the best way to communicate with them.

Identifying industry specific trends and keywords are also excellent ways to cater your job description to a specific demographic. However, take care to not overdo it with the industry jargon.
