The fundamental reason that this classification exists is to develop multiple-tiered assessments and multiple choice tests and to assist the department head in the supervision and management of the Personnel Department. The major work responsibilities for the position include providing administrative and management support to the Personnel Director; supervising employees; planning and managing complex job analysis, classification and testing projects; conducting job analysis; designing selection procedures; and administering and scoring assessment centers or other tests. The incumbents are responsible for a wide variety of functions requiring knowledge of policies and their application to unusual situations. The incumbents make decisions to develop procedures to solve problems, use independent judgment, and exercise discretion in interpreting policies. The senior analyst differs from the personnel analyst in that the senior analyst supervises, develops multi-tiered assessments, and provides management support to the Personnel Director. The classification is directly supervised by the Personnel Director.
