How to Create New Job Positions

by Alejandro Russell

All organizations have employees allocated for different job positions depending on their qualifications, skills and other factors. Every job has a number of duties and responsibilities that come with it. However, the need to create new job positions may arise in your company to relieve certain employees of some duties, or to bring additional skills that may result in increased productivity.

Requirements

When your company is creating a new job position, you should indicate how much education a prospective employee should have, the number of years she needs to have worked in that field and the kind of skills required. Specifically outline any special skills or professional qualifications that are required.

Title

When creating a new job position in your organization, state the title clearly, according to the company’s naming procedure. A job title determines largely the type of responsibilities and duties that the employee is going to perform; it can be administrative, sales, technical, managerial and much more.

Duties and Responsibilities

If your company is hiring a new employee, you must clearly state their job duties and responsibilities. Take the job description of the new position to the head of department or the company owner for approval. When presenting your case to him, clearly give all the details and reasons why you think that position is necessary for the company. Taking some duties and responsibilities from other employees in the company is one way to create responsibilities for the new position, demonstrating how this will increase productivity in the company.

Remuneration

Salary is critical when hiring new workers. Depending on the job position, the amount of work allocated and other factors, develop a good remuneration scale for the new position, considering the company’s’ policy. You should then examine your budget and determine how much you are going to pay the new employee. If your current budget cannot accommodate new positions you can ask for an increase for the current year or wait for the next fiscal year to hire.
