Job description and person specification The church as an employer should provide every employee with a job description that describes the work to be undertaken. This will document the role’s tasks, responsibilities, working arrangements, training and hours. It should also contain a person specification, which details the skills, knowledge, experience, and qualifications required to fulfil the role.
It is important not to include requirements that could be perceived as discriminatory under the Human Rights Act 1993.54 These documents should be written in plain language and be made available to prospective employees prior to applying for the position.
