The Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo, is seeking qualified applicants for the position of Court Human Resources Director. The San Mateo Superior Court prides itself on its excellent reputation for being a state-wide leader in best practices in human resources. The Court is looking for an energetic Human Resources professional to join with the Court Executive Officer and Executive Team to lead the organization as they grow and develop to best meet essential court service needs - and the needs of their expanding workforce. The focus of the Human Resources Division is to provide exceptional service to the main asset of the court, their employees. Their court wide business value - that "we work with and for each other to achieve justice" - is at the heart of every decision made.
As part of the talented Executive Team, the Court Human Resources Director will contribute vision and leadership especially in the area of human resource management. The Executive Team has successfully navigated the San Mateo Superior Court through historically challenging budgetary times. Given five years of unprecedented State budget cuts to the California trial courts, San Mateo Superior Court leadership has faced these challenges directly. Based on strategic planning and prudent, incremental actions, they have successfully completed the profoundly difficult work of a 34% reduction in workforce and consolidation of the majority of Court services to one centralized location, the Redwood City Branch.
Court management, judiciary and staff have worked in partnership with their unions and County partners to create efficiencies, effectively utilize technology and manage their resources to provide the best trial court services possible with the resources available. They have maintained a balanced budget; have established a strong foundation from which to build; and are in a strong position relative to many State trial courts. This creates a unique opportunity for the Court Human Resources Director (Director) to now assist with envisioning new growth and harnessing the potential of the San Mateo Superior Court to best service the public, Court employees and the judiciary while establishing incremental increases in the Court workforce and maintaining efficient staffing patterns.
Typical qualifications include five years of increasingly responsible work experience in personnel system development and administration, including experience in recruitment and selection, position classification, performance evaluations, employer-employee relations, and equal employment opportunity. Previous experience in a management or supervisory position is strongly preferred.
The experienced human resources professional we seek will: plan, organize, direct, coordinate, evaluate and exercise managerial authority over the activities of the Human Resources Division of the San Mateo Superior Court; develop, recommend and implement departmental goals, policies and objectives; develop and implement monitoring and reporting systems to coordinate with those of the State and County human resources departments; and provide highly responsible and complex management support to the Court Executive Officer, Presiding Judge, the judiciary, and management, supervisory and line staff.
The ideal candidate will have significant experience in: employee and labor relations and negotiations; classification and compensation analysis; performance management processes; and contract negotiations, including managing successor memorandums of understanding. Additionally, the ideal candidate will be a well-rounded generalist with a background in staffing, recruitment, risk management, leave management, payroll, statistics and benefits management. The individual selected for the position will have the desire and ability to consistently maintain highest level of professionalism and provide sound personnel management services to court staff.
The Director, as subject matter expert, will also lead labor negotiations in the Fall of 2015, manage employee relations and update personnel policies. Additionally, the Director will help to re-start the training, development, mentoring, employee appreciation and succession planning programs focused on successfully onboarding new and motivating current staff to maximize their potential for the promotional opportunities becoming available.

The Court and the County of San Mateo continue a systems partnership in the areas of payroll, recruitment, training and database maintenance. Beginning in the Fall of 2014 the Court will convert the current systems to Work Day, (the new system) and the Director will play a major role in managing this transition. Additionally, the Director will be charged with determining human resources best practices and strengthening relationships throughout all divisions of the Court.
