The Department is seeking an individual for the position of Senior Management Analyst assigned to Personnel Services who is experienced as a human resource generalist with a strong skill set in employee and labor relations experience. However, responsibilities will also include human resource generalist duties such as personnel, program evaluation, policy and procedure development, employment law interpretation, management information analysis, classification, recruitment and examination, employee training, test validation, and career development. The incumbent will be part of a cohesive functioning team of five in our Personnel Services unit. The Senior Management Analyst works under general direction, performing difficult and responsible professional mid-level management functions in the Personnel Services unit. The incumbent may be assigned to either a specific analysis activity, such as employee relations, or to a generalist assignment with responsibility for dealing with a wide array of analytical staff assignments, many of which may be of a confidential nature. Incumbents are expected to be capable of performing a variety of highly complex research, analysis, reports and procedures. The Senior Management Analyst may supervise personnel.
This position requires that the incumbent have considerable good judgment and discretion, and a complete understanding of appropriate management principles and techniques. Recommendations and commitments made at this level have considerable weight, and personal contacts involve negotiating, advising, and gaining acceptance of one's own ideas by others.
This is the highest-level classification within the Management Analyst series. This classification differs from the next lower level of Management Analyst in that the Senior Management Analyst is expected to handle the most complex analysis work including responsibilities with employee and labor relations, and may oversee/lead and direct the work of the Management Analysts and Associate Management Analysts within the assigned division and may be tasked with overseeing aspects of the day-to-day operations of the division. The Senior Management Analyst is also expected to be able to occasionally fill in for the Director of Personnel Services as needed and appropriate. The Senior Management Analyst differs from the Director of Personnel Services classification in that the latter is responsible for the overall performance of the division and strategy development.
