Exclusion of a particular job description does not suggest that the position is not valid or necessary. Conversely, the inclusion of a job description in this document should not be seen as an endorsement of the necessity or validity of that position.</p> <h2>Job Description Template</h2> <p>The following template can be used to describe a position in almost any volunteer organization and serves as the basis for documenting the TLDP job descriptions.</p> <ul> <li>Position Title</li> <li>Purpose of the position - how does it contribute to the organization's mission?</li> <li>Responsibilities - list of three to seven major tasks expected to be performed.</li> <li>Commitment - how much time, is it flexible, short or long term?</li> <li>Qualifications - skills, education required.</li> <li>Supervisor / Direct reports - who manages this position, who reports to this person?</li> <li>Training / Mentoring - what kind of orientation assistance does the volunteer receive?</li> <li>Policies Affecting Assignment - confidentiality, background checks, if any.</li> <li>Benefits of the position - what does the volunteer gain from volunteering?</li> </ul> <h2>Method For Documenting Job Descriptions</h2> <p>The primary method of determining positions at TLDP is by collecting information from the TLDP volunteer list. The volunteer list information is then expanded and clarified by interviewing, via email, those persons currently holding positions within TLDP. Information is fit into the template.</p> <p>Additional job descriptions not on the volunteer list will be addressed in a second round of information collection.</p> <p><center><font size="-1"> Last Modified: 2005-05-23&nbsp;|&nbsp; <a href="mailto:feedback@en.tldp.org.NOSPAM">feedback@en.tldp.org</a> </font></center></p> </body> </html>
