Why use our job description templates?

There are many reasons for you to use a job description template. It could just be that you need to see an example, so that you can get some ideas and get a head start on creating your job description or it could be that you want to make sure you’re creating the right job advert that attracts the right candidates for your role and ranks properly on the job board sites.

Top 5 tips to using job description examples

  1. Complete all the sections.

All the sections of the template example is designed in the right order and has all the information that not only a candidate is looking for but what the job board algorithm is looking for. Job boards want the candidate to have the best experience on their website so that they keep using their platform for future job hunting. They will show jobs at the top of their search results that have each section outlined in our job description templates as that’s the information the job seeker is looking for.

  1. Remember your job might be different.

Remember that these templates are just examples of what a good job advert will look like and information needed to be included in your job advertisement. Make sure the role requirements and duties match your own job role so that you can find somebody relevant to your own role. Use our examples to get ideas and know which keywords need to be included.

  1. Keep it the same length .

A good job description that’s advertised online should be about a page long on Microsoft Word. Long job adverts may result in less applications, as this an advertisement and not an actual full detailed description of the entire job. Any shorter and this could result in the job boards not fully understanding who to show your job description to.

  1. Make sure you show a salary range.

It can be tempting to not show your job salary as you could want a wide range of candidates with different experiences however you will receive much more applications by showing a salary. You want your job to show up if a candidate is using the salary filter when searching for a job. Use a wide salary range, if you want candidates with different levels of experience.

  1. Use a postcode.

Most job board sites and advertising platforms will use Google Maps API or similar for their location search. Using a postcode makes the search much easier for them to serve your advert to the right candidates and show their exact commute time tot get to the job. This will result in higher rankings compared to job descriptions that don’t show a postcode.
