So, how do you write a good job description?
What makes a good job description?

- Have a compelling opening paragraph
- Be clear about who they are accountable to and responsible for
- Use concise language and use bullet points to break up copy
- Present verb tense
- Use full sentences
- Make priorities clear, as opposed to writing a long list of 'must have's'
