Job description



Title: Human Services Agency Employment & Training Specialist II

Job Code: 9703


Under supervision, provides services to clients including case management, development and implementation of individual training and employment plans, and progress monitoring.

This class utilizes the deep class concept and encompasses multiple levels of responsibility from entry through the fully-experienced journey level. Incumbents with little or no experience in the duties of the class perform beginning-level work and perform at increasingly higher levels of responsibility that require a commensurate higher degree of ability and initiative as experience is gained.

This class is distinguished from the 2905 Human Services Agency Senior Eligibility Worker in that the 2905 determines client eligibility for public assistance programs and certifies for reimbursement under the terms of various social services programs. This class is distinguished from the 2918 Human Services Agency Social Worker in that the 2918 performs a variety of social work duties including client management and continuing client investigation and processing for various social service programs for the Human Services Agency. This class is distinguished from the 9704 Employment & Training Specialist III in that the 9703 Specialist II provides routine services that are less technical and tasks and duties are performed under closer supervision. The 9704 performs higher level technical assignments requiring specialized knowledge, skills, abilities and experiences.
