Job description is the set of rules, duties and responsibilities designed for a particular job or task. It includes the delegation of authority and responsibilities of a particular job.
Job specification includes the skills and know how required for doing a particular job. It includes the abilities and skills of an individual for which the organisation is looking for.

Job description and job specification are two different parts of job and both are equally important. Job description basically deals with the duties , tasks and responsibilities required for taking up any job. However job specifications deals with the skills , expertise and technicalities required by an individual for taking up any job.
Hence to conclude with job description and job specification both plays an important role
