Approval to recruit form template
Hiring managers should seek authorisation for recruitment to all positions. This includes the use of temporary agency and consultancy staff. This form will support a formal request and approval process.
Job advert wording form template
A job advert is used to post jobs and helps standardise them across a business. A good template should list things that attract great candidates, rather than listing requirements and qualifications.
Job description form template
An outline job description including the main headings to use, the role's main duties and who the employee will report to.
Person specification form template
A person specification states the minimum set of capabilities a person needs to have in order for them to be appointed into a position. The primary use of the person specification is to assist in the recruitment and selection of a new employee. It can be separate to the role profile, or standalone.
The person specification highlights the experience, qualifications, skills, knowledge, abilities, personal attributes, behaviours and competencies that are required for a person to be appointed into the role.
