LC: To write a person specification
When a company or business is looking for a new person for their company, they advertise the job on the internet or in a newspaper. If a person is interested in doing that job, they need to fill in a job application form.
Job application forms contain different sections for them to fill in. One of these sections is called the Person Specification. In a Person Specification, the employer writes all the skills that the person should have if they want to apply for the job.
Here are some examples:
Below is an example of what a Person Specification might look like for a Police Officer.

I would like you to write your own person specification using bullet points like I have. Imagine that Fagin is looking for a new pickpocket to work for him. What skills would this person need to have?
Go to the template on Seesaw and complete the Person Specification for a 'Pickpocket'. It is called Pickpocket Needed! (Friday).
