This is the senior-level of the Administrative Assistant job family, accountable for providing highly responsible administrative and secretarial services to relieve an FHS Leader/Director of day-to-day administrative detail so that he/she can concentrate on the significant aspects of his/her own position. Work involves applying knowledge of the Leader/Director’s work objectives and viewpoints and representing the Leader/Director in actions taken within delegated scope of authority.
While the nature of the work is essentially the same as performed by an Administrative Assistant I, the FHS Leader/Director supported is a Vice-President or a Regional Director with service line responsibility. Incumbents are exposed to sensitive information involving not just a particular functional discipline, but the entire organization. Assignments vary considerably as to volume of work, specific duties performed and overall scope of responsibility, depending on the delegation style of the Leader. Although responsible for providing substantive assistance to a key manager, this position does not have independent executive authority.
An incumbent uses considerable knowledge of company organization, policies and practices to facilitate the exercise of independent judgment in making routine administrative decisions and in the approach to take to handle non-routine situations. Incumbents are proficient in all aspects of the work, and may function in a “lead” role with regard to ongoing work or special project- or team-oriented assignments. PC usage is frequent, and an incumbent must possess considerable knowledge and experience in the application/operation of software programs that go beyond menu-driven word processing. Work may involve the development of moderately complex PC databases, spreadsheets, presentation or graphic materials.
This job exists in multiple departments, and while there may be minor differences in job content, they are not significant for classification purposes. Overall, the nature of the work and job requirements are consistent between departments
