Administrative Duties


Actively supports and upholds the City’s stated mission and values. The Administrative Support Series is a broadband series where incumbents are responsible for performing a wide variety of tasks. Duties range from the most routine and repetitive to the most complex of administrative support tasks requiring incumbents to take initiative, make judgment calls, and make decisions for the functions/processes for which they are assigned.

This is the first band in a two-level administrative support series. The Administrative Assistant is distinguished from the Administrative Specialist in that the Assistant is responsible for routine and defined tasks and basic knowledge of the work unit. The Administrative Specialist is responsible for a broader range of duties with more flexibility in making decisions and carrying out tasks (within prescribed procedures) for all functions within the work unit.

There are three zones within the broad band. The incumbent will have the opportunity to advance through the zones based on performance and value added to the organization.

This position is FLSA non-exempt.
