Job Descriptions

Human Management Solutions provides a comprehensive service that identifies the role requirements in the organisation and develops and designs the job description and concurrent skill requirements for that role. The job description for a role in a company allows the organisation to properly identify what needs to be done and what type of candidate can perform that role.


Human Management Solutions can guide you through the relationship of job descriptions so that the company is in compliance with Australian workplace standards and not subject to lawsuits. The correct job description will allow the company to properly set the objectives for that role and assure that they are congruent with the objectives and goals of the company. Lastly, the job description will allow the employee to understand their role and allow both the company and manager to assess their performance in that role.

What is a Job Description?

A job description explains the duties and responsibilities of the job itself, not the characteristics of specific individuals performing the job.


What Questions Do Job Descriptions Answer?

  • WHY is it being done?

  • HOW is it being done?

  • BY WHOM is it being done?

  • IS this what the company needs TODAY?
