Job analysis

Job analysis is the process of analysing the content, purpose and outputs required by a job holder, as well as where the job fits into the organisation’s structure. The analysis should form the basis of a job description and person specification.

Job analysis should be carried out by those responsible for drafting the job description. This might be a line manager or the HR department, or both. The person conducting the analysis should discuss the role with those doing the job, or a similar job, and those who will work closely with the job-holder.
