This is the advanced journey, supervisory level class in the Accountant series. Positions at this level are distinguished from other classes within the series by the level of responsibility assumed, complexity of duties assigned, independence of action taken, and the nature of external contacts and representation. Employees perform complex accounting and financial analyses, and typically supervise an accounting function including professional accounting, technical and clerical personnel. Employees at this level are required to be fully trained in all procedures related to assigned area of responsibility. This job class may also provide responsible professional accounting services to the County's investment activities. Successful performance of the work requires extensive professional background as well as skill in coordinating departmental work. This class is distinguished from the Accountant, Supervising in that the latter predominantly plans, coordinates, organizes, and supervises an assigned work unit(s) within a large, multi-unit division within departments that have agency-wide financial accounting and reporting responsibility. This class is further distinguished from the Auditor series by the latter’s regular performance of internal compliance, financial and performance audits performed in accordance with professional standards such as Institute of Internal Auditors, Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, and Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards, including preparing audit reports with the issuance of an opinion.
Receives general direction from assigned supervisory or management personnel.

Applicants receiving their degree outside the United States must submit proof of accreditation by a recognized evaluation agency.

Training & Experience Rating (100%)
Based upon responses to the supplemental questionnaire, the applicant’s education, training, and experience will be evaluated using a pre-determined formula. Scores from this evaluation will determine applicant ranking and placement on the eligible list.
Prior to the date of hire, applicants must undergo a fingerprint test by the Department of Justice, pass a medical examination (which may include a drug screening and possibly a psychological evaluation), sign a constitutional oath, and submit proof of U.S. citizenship or legal right to remain and work in the U.S. For some positions, applicants may also be required to submit proof of age, undergo a background investigation (which may include a voice stress analysis and/or a polygraph), and/or be bonded. Additionally, positions in law enforcement classifications and those supporting law enforcement functions will be required to complete a conviction history questionnaire prior to or during the interview process. Applicants for positions with access to Medi-Cal billing software or who are licensed providers must clear the Federal Exclusion List, credentialing, and social security verification. Failure to clear these requirements may result in an employment offer being withdrawn.
The eligible list resulting from this recruitment may be certified as a substitute list for a substantially similar classification. For this purpose, a substantially similar classification is one at a lower level in the same classification (example: entry level vs. journey level) and/or a similar classification (similar work performed, similar training and experience qualifications required). If you are contacted for an interview by a County department, you will be informed of the classification and other relevant information. If you choose not to interview for a substantially similar classification, you will remain on the eligible list for which you originally applied.
Placer County offers an expedited process for qualifying certain applicants for interviews. Candidates currently employed, or employed within the last year, by a public agency operating under a personnel civil service or merit system may be eligible to be placed on a Public Agency Eligible List and certified as eligible for appointment to a similar job assignment without going through the examination process.
