Support staff role types are incredibly diverse, with roles ranging from audio secretary to private PA and estate manager. When recruiting, job descriptions play an integral role in communicating what employers are looking for, detailing the requirements and expectations of a role. Equally, job descriptions demonstrate to candidates where their skills may be best suited.
We have created a set of generic support staff job descriptions that outline the potential scope of individual role types.
A job description should clearly outline the key duties within any given role, as well as defining the job title and chain of command.
If certain skills, education, training or other pre-requisites/desirables are required, these should also be listed. Salary and benefits, including hours of work and holiday, should be clearly stated.
If candidates have an opportunity to review a role’s job description ahead of applying, they should be able to determine quickly whether a position is suitable for them. They can decide whether to apply based on their skillset and the requirements of the role.
A good role job description should also mean employers receive fewer applications from candidates that do not match the criteria, saving time on both sides. Please find our full list of support staff job descriptions below:
