***Are you innovative? Are you progressive? Do you think outside the box?***

Here is a unique opportunity to be part of a team that will help shape the future of Human Resources operations and hiring throughout the state!

The California Department of Human Resources is looking for progressive individuals who wish to be part of creating a Pilot Project which will impact Human Resources Offices in the State of California. The Pilot Project will involve designing and implementing the processes for delegating and streamlining Human Resources functions.

In an effort to develop and implement a plan to streamline and delegate human resources duties to state departments, the California Department of Human Resources (CalHR) is establishing a team to streamline and delegate aspects of the 1) Career Executive Assignment (CEA) Program; 2) the review of allocations and classifications at the departmental level and 3) unlawful appointments. This pilot project will be designed as a phased in approach and will be conducted over the next two years to provide structure and processes, training, and staff development to departments.

The Department of Human Resources (CalHR) offers convenient transportation options, including light rail, pre-tax parking, on-site ATM, a local farmer’s market and a variety of nearby restaurants. This position is excluded from collective bargaining and receives enhanced benefits.


CalHR’s mission is to ensure the proper administration of existing terms and conditions of employment for the State’s civil service employees, and to represent the Governor as the “employer” in all matters concerning State employer-employee relations. CalHR is the agency responsible for managing the State’s personnel system.

The Personnel Management Division (PMD) in part provides consultation and direction to departments on human resources management issues; reviews departmental personnel performance and compliance consistent with best practices and standards; exercises leadership to eliminate outmoded or redundant personnel rules; establishes standards for delegation of authority and provides management with the necessary skills to carry out their missions.


Under general direction, provides consultation and information to PMD management and CalHR’s Executive staff regarding development of the Delegation/Streamlining Pilot Project (Pilot), enhancements or changes to the Pilot and the implementation of statewide processes and policies regarding CEA appointments, departmental allocations and classifications, and unlawful appointments. Ensures appropriate adjustments are made to the departmental delegation authority, as needed. Develops and oversees the administration of a variety of statewide personnel management and compensation initiatives to achieve the envisioned objective; conducts personnel management system studies to address operational needs and to avoid future problems; and conducts and/or leads a team of analysts conducting reviews of personnel programs. Confers with line department representatives to identify departmental problems in order to address current needs and anticipate the type of personnel management services necessary. Serves on teams and committees to address personnel management needs; conveys CalHR’s management philosophy to departmental management and encourages its application with the department’s personnel management practices; and promotes the use of best practice management principles. Analyzes, reviews and approves position allocations, modifications to the State’s classification plan and provides consultative direction to develop legitimate working alternatives to meet customers’ operational needs. In cooperation with the CalHR Labor Relations Division, serves as consultant to the Labor Relations Officers engaged in negotiations, administration, and implementation of labor agreements.


Highly self-motivated with excellent planning, organization, analytical, interpersonal, attendance, oral and written skills. General understanding of the State system and experience in classification and compensation a plus.
