Located about 35 miles west of Denver, on the eastern side of the Continental Divide, Clear Creek County, Colorado (pop. 9,900, area 396 sq. mi.), is naturally beautiful and central to state history. Within four national forests (Arapaho, Pike, Roosevelt, and San Isabel) and 72% comprised of public lands, the county takes its name from Clear Creek, a major site of the 1859 Colorado Gold Rush, which led to the formation of Colorado Territory in 1861, and statehood in 1876. The 2022 budget of $39.1 million (GF reserve $22.4 million) supports 230 FTEs, including PTEs and seasonal.

Any equivalent combination may be considered. Knowledge of all federal and Colorado employment laws, especially all recent amendments, is required. Proficiency with Excel, certifications (PHR, SPHR, CP, or SCP), experience negotiating employee benefits, and proficiency with HRIS are all preferred.

The hiring range for this position is $117,900 to $141,500 DOQE.
