Job descriptions should be prepared using the Job Description AS Template as a guide. Any unusual needs or requirements for the position should be added in a separate section. AS1030-1 JOB DESCRIPTION covers job title, effective date, department, summary of functions, and more. The Aerospace Job Description Template must be signed by the department manger, HR manager, and Senior Management.
Hiring managers should be responsible for initiating drafts or changes to existing job descriptions. Whenever practical, supervisors should interact with other employees – managerial and non-managerial – when developing or reviewing descriptions in order to better ensure accurate, clear, and meaningful job descriptions. The next higher management level should approve job descriptions prepared by their subordinate hiring managers. The Human Resources Manager should communicate completed job descriptions to hiring managers and their superiors.
The Human Resources Manager should periodically review job descriptions to: determine if those descriptions accurately reflect the company’s short- and long-term needs (e.g., industry/technological advances, competitiveness); and ensure that job descriptions continue to meet company and regulatory requirements (e.g., Americans with Disabilities Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, Occupational Safety and Health Act).
