It is a rare luck to be able to say the job description you just read was interesting. Either it is a hothouse of cliche phrases or it is an actual copy of the one you read before. In one word: boring. In many cases, the job spec is that first bit of information potential candidate communicates with. From nailing employer branding to showcasing your perks, there are many ways you can improve your spec. However, one of the most obvious elements of an outstanding job description is usually not taken too seriously – hello, the actual job title!
Whilst it is important to make clear what position you are trying to fill, it is also recommended to reflect your company culture in every touch point. What can attract the attention more than the unusual title fully corresponding to your business character? Here are six companies that got it right.
