Features of key recruitment documents, describing the factors to be considered when planning to fill vacancies and conducting interviews Before a business starts recruiting new employees the human resources department compiles a job description and person specification for the specific job they have a vacancy for. The job description gives potential candidates a taste of what is expected of them in the job.
