The Job Definition Survey is designed to help your organisation define the behavioral requirements of a specific position. It could be completed by the immediate supervisor, senior members of management who are directly familiar with the job, past incumbents of the position, as well as those who report to the position.

DO NOT rate or describe any individual who might be currently doing the job. Focus, instead, on how you believe the ideal performer would do the job. Be sure to concentrate on those behaviours that are essential for success and put less emphasis on those that would simply be nice to have.

for example:
Helps others
Is composed
Works within company policies
Welcomes responsibility

How to complete this form:

There are twenty-one groups of words of statements. Rank each word of statement according to how it best describes the specific position.

A = most important behaviour
B = second most important behaviour
C = third most important behaviour
D = least important behaviour

There should only be one A, one B, one C and one D for each set.
