Advert and job description

When you see a job you think you might want, you will see:

  • the job advert
  • a job description or employee specification

The advert will:

  • Give you a short explanation of the tasks of the job.
  • Tell you what you would be expected to do.
  • Tell you the pay, hours and days you will have to work.
  • Tell you where the job is.

This will help you to decide if you want to apply.

The job description/employee specification will go into more detail about the job. It will include:

  • the tasks and responsibilities of the job
  • the skills you need to do the job

The employee specification will be in two parts:

  • Part 1: Essential criteria - the things you must be able to do or be qualified for
  • Part 2: Desirable criteria -things that would be helpful to do the job

If you do not have the desired criteria you can still apply for the job.
