Standout job description template

What’s in the template?

A job or position description (JD or PD) should be a comprehensive document that gives your incoming applicant a deeper understanding of the role they are applying for. Different from the job ad, where you would provide a more top-line description of the role, a position description is a more formal document detailing the role, the company and role responsibilities.

A perfect JD should leave the applicant knowing that they are definitely right or wrong for the role. It should take a deeper dive into the skills required, and share insights about how the role fits into the wider company and aligns with company values. It should also give the applicant the knowledge they will need to undertake the rest of the recruitment process.
