Well, would you like to be hired to do all the stuff that your
co-workers don't like doing? Probably not, right?

I can't offer you advice on exactly how you should split your duties
because I have no idea what kind of environment you're in or what your
projects are like. But, I'd try to create two positions that do
everything, one at a worker bee level, and one at a part-time worker
bee and part time supervisory level.

Give the new hire a reason to want to work there.

I have convinced my supervisor and CEO that after 4 years of having a
documentation department of one, we need to hire someone else. With
that, the newly hired person will be doing more writing and I will be
doing more supervisory things, which is great!! For those of you that
have experienced this, how did you go about breaking your one job into
multiple jobs? Was there an agreed upon division or was it more like
"the new person can do the things I don't like to do", which is
currently where I'm going. Any help you could offer would be greatly
