Job design templates toolkit
Our Job Design Templates Toolkit streamlines the process of creating well-defined job roles, fostering clarity and productivity within the organisation.
If you are preparing to fill a job vacancy, these model job design templates will help you to ensure that a role is appropriately created, designed and approved.
What is Job design?
Job design HR templates are documents that employers can use as a starting point when designing job roles or other related documents. These templates are designed to ensure that the employer follows the correct procedures and includes all the necessary information required to design effective job roles that align with the needs of the business.
Employers should always ensure that any job design HR templates they use are tailored to their specific circumstances. It is also important to regularly review and update job design materials to ensure that they remain relevant and effective, and meet the needs of the business.
Getting this process right is crucial if a recruiting campaign is to be cost-effective and attract the proper candidates.
Employers should organise and prepare their strategy before beginning to advertise jobs, carefully evaluating the content and appearance of the job advertisement, as well as the best time to post it. They should also determine the best medium for promoting the position in order to reach the right audience.
Preparing a job description and person specification can be an excellent starting point for creating a job advertisement to promote vacancies.
The Equality Act of 2010 applies to all types of job advertisements.
Employers must not publish advertisements that suggest, or may reasonably infer, discrimination.
Advertisements should include enough information about the job and the organisation to enable applicants determine if they are qualified for the position.
Unless it is an occupational necessity or a legitimate positive action, advertisements must not target applicants with a specific protected trait.
To promote submissions from under-represented groups, positive action may be taken.
Relying on 'word of mouth' recruiting has the potential to discriminate indirectly.
Employers may be held accountable for the discriminatory activities of third-party advertisers acting on their behalf.
Employers shall not place third parties under any pressure to discriminate in the recruiting process.
Employers must offer information on relevant job postings to temporary agency workers/fixed term employees.
