Preparing your Job Profiles and having them updated regularly to keep them accurate and current, can save your company from many potentially costly issues during an employee’s lifecycle with your company. Your employee’s job profiles are the basis of countless HR interventions. From the moment the candidate applies for a position within your company, the job profile can make or break the integrity of the recruitment process. It all starts with you, the employer, having a good understanding of the job functions and the role required for the candidate to successfully execute their duties in your business. A job profile reflects the minimum requirements for a position. These include the required qualifications, experience, knowledge, skills and behavioural competencies. A job profile also contains the main responsibilities of the position. This is the heart of the job profile.
