Job analysts advise client companies, helping them define their jobs in order to optimise their organisational structure, identify the aims of each job, the necessary competencies in order to perform them successfully, and a suitable salary. To do so, they gather and analyse detailed information about the requirements of the people who occupy each position in order to prepare precise descriptions.

These descriptions, in addition to setting out these professionals' duties, also include a description and asessment of the levels of training and skills required by each job. Job analysis is an essential task within human resources departments, since it affects the way in which the rest of the department's tasks are carried out, including recruitment and selection, the undertaking of training programmes and, broadly speaking, in the planning of human resources.
