Class Concepts

Principal Personnel Analyst II and I

Incumbents are responsible for supervising or performing the highest level of personnel analysis. Positions are allocated to these levels by the Chancellor or Vice President on the basis of internal comparison with Staff Officer I and II classes and the nature and scope of responsibilities, the role of the position in the over-all management function, and the specialized requirements of the work.

Senior Personnel Analyst

Incumbents (a) have responsibility for a large group of campus departments and supervise other Personnel Analysts, or (b) have continuing campus-wide responsibility for one or more of the functional areas of the personnel program such as salary administration, employee relations, management development, and training, and usually supervise other professional employees, or (c) conduct responsible and complex analysis of personnel rules, policies, classification standards, salary ranges and other areas on a University-wide basis. Personnel analysis duties are performed under minimal supervision and work is reviewed in terms of meeting specific goals and objectives.

Typically at this level, incumbents develop and recommend now campus-wide or University-wide personnel programs, policies, and procedures; review the reeds of the campus and University, and make recommendations for changes in the Personnel program; provide advice and assistance to other Personnel Analysts on the more difficult problems; represent the Personnel Office in discussion with outside organizations and agencies; and supervise the work of other Personnel Analysts.

Personnel Analyst

Incumbents perform responsible and complex professional personnel analysis with only general supervision. The majority of personnel analysis duties in a campus Personnel office are performed at this level.

Typically at this level, incumbents review and allocate continuing and new positions to the appropriate class; develop classification standards for new classes and review appropriateness of standards for existing classes; conduct surveys regarding pay data, employment practices and policies; develop salary and policy recommendations; advise departmental administrators on action involving promotion, demotion, transfer, and other personnel actions; review requests for exceptions to personnel policies and make recommendations; and provide advice to departmental administrators in a variety of personnel areas.

Assistant Personnel Analyst

Incumbents perform personnel analysis under the supervision of higher level Personnel Analyst. Assignments may be more limited than those at the Personnel Analyst level, but the primary distinction is the degree of independence with which the incumbent performs a wide variety of personnel analysis functions.
