Creating a Person Specification

Once the job description has been documented you are in a position to analyse exactly what kind of person you require for each particular role – this is called a person specification.

Person Specifications set the recruiting target and establishes the criteria to be used when screening and interviewing applicants. After all, you cannot find what you want until you know what you want!

A person specification outlines the minimum selection criteria an applicant needs to meet — what qualifications, skills and attributes are essential for the position?

This document will help you focus on what you need to look for to fill the role you want to fill.
