Best practice Job Descriptions

      My organisation aspires to transform our job descriptions, making them more attractive to candidates. Historically, JDs have been very ‘wordy’ and complex, generally as a result of having to go through a robust job evaluation process.

      Has anyone recently undertaken a similar exercise or come across / used any best practice job descriptions that they would be willing to share?

      Many thanks!


        We are also looking at our job profiles, so anything to share would be much appreciated


          Hi all, we have successfully piloted Textio: to write attractive job descriptions (recruitment marketing). Originally, we were concerned that our JDs were gender-biased, therefore the Textio pilot. Adoption by Line Managers has been high.

          We have also been trying to move away from listing tasks! A typical JD now includes:

          – About “Swiss Re” and the unit

          – About the Role

          – About the Team

          – About You

          All the best! Jasmine


            Hi Sharon,

            Here are a few resources on the club that you might find useful:

            Example job spec for a Head of Learning & Development 

            Example job spec for a Head of Diversity

            Example job spec for a HRBP

            Good luck and do keep us posted on how you get on!
