Job description is a written statement that defines the duties, relationships and results expected of anyone in the job. It is an overall view of what is to be done in the job.

Job Specification is an analysis of the kind of person it takes to do the job, that is to say, it lists the qualifications. Typically this would include

Degree of education
Desirable amount of previous experience in similar work
Specific Skills required
