Hi! This is Meghan Lynn Allen for About.com, and today we'll share some tips on how to write a human resources assistant job description.
Duties of a Human Resources Assistant
Human resources administrative assistants are responsible for the smooth operations of your office. They keep key employee records, they meet with the public, and they run all of your office machines. So having that well-written job description will ensure that they're do the right job all the time. An employee, or possible employee, reading that job description should have a clear idea of the responsibilities expected of them and whether or not they have the right qualifications. A well-written job description has all of the essential details, such as title of the position, the department the employee will be working in, and the name and title of the person that employee will report to.
List Responsibilities in Job Description
It will also include the overall responsibilities of the job and the key responsibilities. Consider writing a short paragraph that defines the overall responsibilities of the job, and then some bullets with a short list of the most important priorities. Next, list the qualifications that are required for this new human resources assistant, their skills and previous work experience. And be sure to mention if there's anything necessary, like a bachelor's degree, a license, or a certificate that they'll need to commit to this job.
Proofread Human Resources Assistant Job Description
It's very important to proofread this job description before it goes out to the public. Run it by a second eye, get somebody's opinion, make sure that it's clear and understood with no spelling or grammatical errors. If a drug test or physical exam is necessary to obtain this job, make sure to put this right out front of the job description. Employees need to be aware of what situation they're walking into.
