Human Resources & Risk Manager is a single-position, mid-level manager classification. Under administrative direction, within a framework of overall goals and objectives, the incumbent is responsible for planning, directing, and administering District-wide human resources and risk management programs and related activities. Programmatic responsibilities include recruitment and selection, classification, pay, and benefits administration, employee/labor relations, equal employment opportunity, employee training and development, workers compensation, and risk management. Responsibilities are broad in scope and require leadership and independent judgment on issues that are complex, interpretive, and evaluative in nature.
This classification is distinguished from other managers within the District by the specific responsibility for administering District-wide human resources and risk management programs. This classification is distinguished from the General Manager in that the latter is the chief executive responsible for the effectiveness of all District operations and provides direction to this classification.
