The person who decides whether there is a job vacancy is most probably the branch manger, and maybe for the branch manager's job, the human resources for the whole of Barclays bank will decide whether there is a job vacancy for that job. There could be many reasons why there would be aa job vacancy, for instance: - A person could have retired - A person may have been made redundant - A woman may have left for pregnancy leave - A new branch could have opened and they will need staff In the matter of the last case, many jobs would be needed so everything like advertising, job descriptions, interviewing etc will have to be done on a much larger scale. If a job was vacant for just a short while, and then a few other employees would do some of the tasks each to make up that job until that person returned.

A person specification can, therefore, form the basis for the selection of the most suitable person to fill the job. The advantages of a personal specification for the employer are: - it narrows down the amount of applicants needed for the job - it gives an idea of an applicants personality without meeting them in person - it gives an insight to the applicants capabilities in relation to the job. The disadvantages of a personal specification for the employers are: - it is extra work to add to the job description and higher cost for the advertisement e.g. higher cost for advertisement inside a newspaper - it may be harder to find someone who fit the job description and the personal specification as well. - You have to be very careful with the wording on the personal specification so that you are not discriminating against anyone The advantages of a personal specification for the applicant: - more description for ...read more.
