NATURE OF WORK
This is administrative work assisting in the coordination and administration of specially assigned programs or projects.
Work involves coordinating all activities of a program or project which has operational responsibility of a major scope, a large-sized budget, and provides a critical county service. Work involves serving as a liaison with other county, state, federal, and community agencies. Work requires familiarity with the subject matter of the project but full technical knowledge is not essential as specialists in the various aspects of the operation are utilized for technical assistance. Employees in this class are expected to coordinate and manage operations with considerable independence, although all major decisions are referred to an administrative superior for advice and direction. Supervision is received through conferences with an administrative superior and by adherence to established policies and procedures. Supervision may be exercised over clerical staff and specially assigned technical subordinates. Work is reviewed through conferences, reports, and program achievements.
