Introduction

Business Resources In this task I will be researching the recruitment documents of Tesco, the second largest supermarket (measured in profits) in the world, behind Wal-Mart. To research these recruitment documents I will be looking at job advertisement of 'Marketing Manager', this includes the job description and person specification. What is a job description? A job description is a list of the general tasks and responsibilities of a position. Typically, it outlines what tasks will be needed to be completed while in the job and the salary range. An example of a job description is shown below. http://www.tesco-careers.com/job.cfm/reference/1209680/source/WCN/ What is a person specification? A person specification is the opposite to a job description, instead of focussing on the details of the job, the person specification details the type of person the company wants for the job, usually a job specification would have a list of essential qualities that are required for the job, for example 'Excellent knowledge of the full POS processes including brief, creative management & managing agencies' is required for the Marketing Manager in Tesco. ...read more.

wheelchair access. This is important as it means Tesco cannot discriminate while choosing people to hire. Interview Checklist An interview checklist is a list of essential and non-essential qualities which the company look for, with the non-essential qualities being a bonus. As we cannot actually acquire the Tesco interview checklist we have research and write about what may be in their checklist. Tesco may have qualifications in their checklist, because it is a Marketing Manager, qualifications may be essential. Another point on the interview checklist may be languages, this may be non-essential as it is not an international job which is on offer, therefore languages are not a must, however Tesco may see this as a positive. Experience may also be on the checklist as essential, this may be because they cannot afford to lose time training; therefore someone with experience can easily fit in and start working. As part of the interview checklist, the interviewer at Tesco may use psychometric testing, to test the knowledge, abilities, attitude and personality; these would give Tesco an idea on the person. ...read more.
