Sample Job Descriptions

The following are actual job descriptions used in various counties across the state, separated by office. These are examples that may be used by county officials in developing their own job descriptions. These job descriptions have not been reviewed by CTAS for accuracy or compliance with the law. Users are urged to consult with their county attorney for legal advice and guidance in developing specific job descriptions for their particular county office. One provision that would be helpful to include in all job descriptions you develop for your county office is the following language or something similar:

This job description indicates in general terms the type and level of work performed and the typical responsibilities of employees in this job classification. The duties described are not to be interpreted as being all-inclusive to any specific employee. Management reserves the right to add to, modify, change or rescind the work assignments of any position at any time, and to make reasonable accommodations so that qualified employees can perform the essential functions of the job. Nothing in this position description changes the at-will employment relationship existing between the County and its employees.
