A job analysis is a structured approach that identifies and determines the major requirements of a role, and the relative importance of the requirements necessary to successfully perform the duties of the position.

The purpose of job analysis is to establish and document what the role entails and the capabilities required to perform the role effectively, as well as how the role fits into the overall organisational objectives. If a previous job analysis has been undertaken for a role, it is always a good idea to ensure that the outcomes of the analysis are still relevant.

The completion of a job analysis will form the basis of the Position Description for any new or substantially altered role, as well as support other workforce planning functions such as the selection process and identifying training requirements and resources.

This Job Analysis Form is designed to be used by managers or HR practitioners to record information that may form the basis of a new or revised position description.

Please note that a  Job Analysis Questionnaire is available to provide to employees for their completion, along with guidance notes. It is recommended to obtain employee input due to their level of knowledge regarding the performance of the position.
