The Human Resources Team is committed to providing professional guidance and expertise in the areas of: benefits administration, employee relations, recruitment and employment, safety, and training and development. The Human Resources Team works to cultivate positive working relationships by creating and enhancing valuable services that attract, develop and retain a talented and diverse workforce.
The City of Hayward is excited to announce its recruitment for the position of Human Resources Analyst I/II. Under general direction, performs a variety of professional human resources duties including: recruitment and selection, classification, compensation, training, benefits and leave management, workers' compensation, safety, insurance, risk management, and/or employee and labor relations; provides analytical support to City management and supervisory staff; and performs a variety of other related duties as assigned. This position requires discretion to work with confidential and sensitive issues on a regular basis.
Human Resources Analyst I - This is the entry level class in the Human Resources Analyst series that allows the incumbent to develop journey level knowledge and abilities. Initially, under close supervision, incumbents perform the more routine and less complex human resources assignments while learning City policies and procedures. As experience is gained, there is greater independence of action within established guidelines. Advancement from the entry level to the Human Resources Analyst II level is in accordance with City policies and procedures, including receiving recommendation for advancement from the respective Department Director or designee.
Human Resources Analyst II - Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and may be filled by advancement from the lower level of Human Resources Analyst I or by candidates possessing at least two years of experience equivalent to that of a Human Resources Analyst I. Human Resources Analyst II is the journey-level class in the Human Resources Analyst series, and it is expected that an incumbent would perform the full range of duties for this class independently and without close supervision. Work in this class is distinguished from that of a Human Resources Analyst I by the greater complexity of assignments received and by the greater independence with which an incumbent is expected to work.
