I am currently welcoming applications for an Administrative Assistant to join my office staff team. Details and application instructions here. Please forward the information to qualified candidates who may be interested. This opening is available since Cary (Turkon) Watters, who has been with me since our first day in January 2009, is leaving to enter the Masters in Urban Planning graduate program at Portland State University. Please follow the steps listed in the Job description. Applications received by July 8 at 4:30 p.m. will be processed first, so please respond and/or pass along the information with urgency.
The City is also accepting applications for trainee fire fighters and emergency medical technicians in Portland Fire & Rescue. See here for all current open recruitments for City jobs.
Yvonne Deckard, the City's Bureau of Human Resources Director, announced last week that the City's hiring freeze ends June 30. The hiring freeze, which allowed exceptions with authorization, was imposed to reduce labor costs during the recession.
