No person specification

    I'm really unsure as to how to write an effective application if no person specification is given for a particular job? Do I just imagine what I think they are looking for and show how I meet those criteria?

    I would feel confident doing this for a teaching job, as I've had a few of those and I feel I can anticipate what most schools want. However, the position I want to apply for is a step up from what I'm doing at the moment as it's an assistant headship, and becauae it's a new role (to me) I'm not quite sure what's involved. I have a job description but am not finding it that useful. I've looked online for example person specs, but I find the role of assistant head seems to vary so much from school to school it's hard to know exactly what this one will be looking for?

    Any advice gratefully received!!
