1.1 Picking out the details from a job advert
Many employers will supply a job description and a person specification. The job description tells you about the job and the person specification what abilities, qualities and qualifications are required. Job adverts will usually be based on these two documents and present the most important aspects of them.
The job advertisement you’ve already looked at has both these elements, so provides good practice in analysing what is expected of you.
