About the detailed job description template

Writing a clear job description not only helps you find the right person, it also defines what they'll do once you've hired them.

This template will help you:

  • define the job title, salary, type of employment (for example full-time or part-time) and who the role reports to
  • the purpose of the position
  • key duties and responsibilities
  • academic or trade qualifications required
  • previous work experience or skills you want in your new employee
  • the qualities or behaviours you want in your new employee.

For roles that require less detail, use our simple job description template.
