The Department of Human Resources (DHR) is seeking a Classification Analyst to serve in a unique role as a State’s expert in the field of job evaluation and classification. We are looking for professional applicants that enjoy the complexity of classification and compensation.
In this position, you will provide highly complex classification consultation to all levels of the Executive Branch in classification philosophy and theory, determining the appropriate FLSA, EEO4, managerial designations, applicable Collective Bargaining Unit Agreement provisions, and similar job coding based on the job evaluation. You will have the opportunity to lead substantial portions of statewide studies to establish new or revised job classes in the process of maintaining the State’s job classification system.
