Position Information

Under general direction, a Supervising Staff Services Analyst is responsible for providing first level supervision over professional staff engaged in general administrative, personnel, staff development, fiscal, and/or program analytical work. In addition to the supervisory responsibilities, incumbents typically handle the most difficult and sensitive analytical work in their assigned work unit and performs related duties as assigned.

The Supervising Staff Services Analyst classification is the first supervisory level in the Staff Services series. In smaller departments, a Supervising Staff Services Analyst may supervise staff working in more than one administrative functional area. In the larger departments, the class may supervise within a single functional area due to the size and complexity of that function. It is distinguished from the Staff Services Analyst III by its full scope of supervisory responsibilities and the fact that the latter is the advanced journey-level class in the series where incumbents primarily serve as lead workers and/or may perform the more advanced and complex analytical work in the unit, but do not typically supervise other analysts. It is also distinguished from the Staff Services Manager in that the latter is the highly advanced-level in the Staff Services series where incumbents serve as functional managers (e.g., as a fiscal administrator or officer) over a complex staff services function, but may not have first-line supervisory responsibility over other analysts.
