This recruitment will be used to fill vacancies in various County departments as they arise.
To perform and supervise technical, sub-professional, accounting, finance and fiscal recordkeeping; and to prepare and review financial and statistical records.
This is the full journey level technical accounting class. Employees within this class are distinguished from the Account Clerk series by the performance of work that typically requires specialized college-level training in accounting and finance rather than bookkeeping, by performing a broad range of duties as assigned and typically including responsibility for a program area of accounting and/or supervision of Account Clerks. Employees at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies of the work unit.
This class is distinguished from the Accountant–Auditor series in that the latter is a professional level, requiring completion of a Bachelor's Degree in accounting or a closely related field.
Receives direction from assigned supervisory or management personnel.
May exercise supervision over Account Clerk classifications or general clerical personnel.
Duties may include, but are not limited to, the following:
It is the applicant's responsibility to identify in their application materials how they meet the Minimum Qualifications listed below.
Experience: Two years of responsible journey level experience performing duties similar to an Account Clerk – Journey with Placer County.
*NOTE* - When assigned to the Treasurer - Tax Collector Department: additional knowledge and experience in working with and researching local, State, and Federal taxation rules, regulations, and laws is highly desired.
Training: Equivalent to the completion of the twelfth grade supplemented by college level coursework in accounting or a related field.
License or Certificate:
May need to possess a valid driver's license as required by the position. Proof of adequate vehicle insurance and medical clearance may also be required.
Written Examination (100%)
The written examination may include multiple choice, true/false, fill-in, matching, and/or essay type questions directly related to the required knowledge and abilities for this classification.
All applicants who meet minimum qualifications will be required to respond to an online Conviction History Questionnaire, which will be sent as a link on their notification that minimum qualifications have been met. Failure to respond to this questionnaire within (3) three calendar days of the minimum qualification notification will result in disqualification from the examination.
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 and/or be bonded.
All new permanent employees, with the exception of sworn law enforcement and those in management and confidential groups, shall be required to join the employee organization or pay an 'Agency Fee' as a condition of employment.
The eligible list(s) 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) 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.
