About the book

Providing over 200 job descriptions and updated to take account of the new Age Discrimination legislation, this book is the most comprehensive and up-to-date resource available to create meaningful descriptions for your employees.

This book offers a unique time-saving approach in the form of a 'job description builder' which allows you to select featured job elements and build a complete and well-structured job description. Divided into two parts, the first enables quick and easy assembly and personalization of any job description, across a wide range of sectors such as administration and management, finance and accountancy, and human resources. Part Two allows you to select from hundreds of job elements, such as providing care and guidance, client relations, and project management.

This edition provides online access to each job description so you can personalize them to suit your own circumstances, saving hours of valuable time.
