Creating a job description is one of the first steps in the recruitment, selection and hiring process. It requires consultation with stakeholders to establish and validate what skills and experience the successful candidate should possess, and what tasks would be expected of them. This then needs to be clearly communicated in the job description, as well as information on the working conditions (for example, hours) and your startup’s corporate culture.

When organizing your ideas to prepare a job description, it can help to follow an example, such as the one in the template below for the role of an administrative assistant.
