Under direction, performs quasi-administrative/analytical work of considerable difficulty and complexity in specific County office settings; coordinates and supports a variety of complex office activities related to advanced personnel, payroll, labor relations, systems maintenance and other administrative functions; may supervise a medium-sized group of other clerical/technical employees as a related, but not definitive, duty; and does related or other work as required in accordance with Rule 3, Section 3, of the Civil Service Rules.


This is the highly specialized-level class in the Office Assistant series. Positions must meet specific criteria for allocation to this class and are not multi-allocated with other levels in the series. Incumbents are expected to apply substantial initiative and independent judgment to perform a varied range of quasi-administrative/analytical duties utilizing specialized procedures within established policies. The specific duties performed by incumbents may be unique to the work area and, depending upon the assignment, usually require a highly advanced understanding of specialized and/or technical subject matter. Typical job assignments that fit the class concept include, but are not limited to: provision of quasi-administrative/analytical management support related to multiple specialized areas and/or programs; advanced interpretation, explanation and implementation of very complex administrative and/or program-specific policies/procedures; and/or advanced clerical office management which includes broad responsibility for coordinating a wide range of complex administrative functions, and which may/may not include supervision of other support staff. Although incumbents may perform limited repetitive tasks involving complex clerical processes, most job situations require the incumbents to perform some analysis and make independent decisions within broad policy parameters.

This class differs from Office Assistant Specialist because an incumbent in this class functions at a quasi-administrative/analytical level, performing broader office management duties that require advanced knowledge of multiple specialized programs or functions, while an Office Assistant Specialist performs duties requiring in-depth knowledge of a limited range of specialized programs/functions. In addition, an Office Technician/Coordinator generally receives assignments from a high-level manager while a non-management clerical, technical or professional employee most often supervises an Office Assistant Specialist.
