Step 1 – Before you start looking
Put together information about the nature of the job, especially if it is a position being created for the first time. Think about:
The content (such as the tasks) making up the job
The output required by the job holder (work hours, number of clients, etc.)
How it fits into the structure of the practice/organization
The skills and personal attributes needed to perform the role effectively.
This analysis forms the basis of a job description and person specification.
