County of Alameda

Alameda County, California, was established in 1853. The County was created from the territory of two counties created in 1850: Contra Costa and Santa Clara. It was given the local name for the region, Alameda, which translated loosely as "a grove of poplars." The County enjoys a varied geography ranging from urban marinas to rolling open spaces to hillside lakes and streams. Alameda is the seventh most populous county in California, and has 14 incorporated cities and several unincorporated communities. The total population is estimated to be 1,510,271 as of April 2010, a 4.6% increase from April 2000. During the same time period, California's population rose 10%. Oakland is the seat of County government and the largest city.

Alameda County is characterized by rich diversity and culture. Population growth has occurred with the natural net increase of births over deaths, but also from substantial immigration, and Alameda County is now one of the most ethnically diverse regions in the Bay Area and the nation. The 2010 Census shows that there is no majority racial or ethnic group in Alameda County. Compared to the 2000 Census, the Black / African American population decreased countywide by 11%, the Asian population increased by 31%, and the Hispanic population increased by 23%. According to the California Department of Education, 53 languages were spoken by English language learners in the K-12 public school systems in Alameda County in 2008-09.

THE POSITIONS: Specialist Clerk I's, under general supervision,do difficult clerical work, requiring the exercise of considerable initiative and judgment, within the framework of County or department policies and procedures; and to do related work as required. This is a specialized clerical class. Incumbents of positions in this class perform duties requiring the exercise of initiative and judgment significantly beyond that of the journey-level class of Clerk II. The majority of the duties assigned must fall into one of the following four categories: 1. Positions responsible for regularly eliciting information from or giving information to people in various stressful situations. The stressful situations mainly occur in "direct (face-to-face) personal" contact. Positions also fall into this category when, because of the situation and the type of clientele, the actual threat of bodily harm exists on a regularly recurring basis. Often the Specialist Clerk I is the public's initial contact with the County system. Such positions may be found in the Health Care Services Agency, Probation Department, Public Defender's Office, Social Services Agency, and the Sheriff's Office. 2. Positions responsible for independently resolving problems for which there is no immediate policy or clear precedent. Such positions may function in an isolated location or field office, or function as "Office Coordinators" for units with no ongoing, on-site clerical supervision. 3. Positions which require a specialized knowledge (as opposed to a general or a working knowledge) of broad and complex procedures, systems, rules, codes, and policies in order to perform their assigned duties. Such positions normally require a minimum of six months to one year of training in order to make independent decisions and determinations based on this specialized department and program knowledge. 4. Positions which require, as a major portion of the job, independent liaison activities (typically oral) with other agencies or other County Departments as a representative of the County. Incumbents of such positions regularly initiate action and have the authority to deviate from usual methods when independently performing duties. Often in these situations, supervision is not immediately available. MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS Either I - The equivalent of one year of experience in the class of Clerk II or in an equivalent or higher level clerical class in the Alameda County classified service. (Non-classified includes District Attorney's Office, Hospital Authority, and the Consolidated Courts.) Or II - The equivalent of two years of full-time clerical experience. License : Some positions may require a valid California Driver's license. Designation: Spanish-speaking is required.
