Reporting to the Chief Building Inspector, this is moderately complex clerical and word processing work involving independent typing and clerical duties of comparable responsibility. The complexity of the work may involve some initiative in planning the sequence of duties and the work methods to be employed. The work of this class is distinguished from that of a Clerk Typist II by the greater difficulty and complexity of the clerical duties which frequently call for the exercise of independent judgement in the more repetitive phases of the work where decisions are based upon a good understanding of departmental procedures. Employees of this class ordinarily have some responsibility for finality of action on repeat assignments but difficult or unusual problems are referred to a supervisor. Detailed oral and written instructions on initial and new assignments are received from a supervisor who checks the work for accuracy and completeness and makes a general evaluation in terms of the standards desired. Performs related work as required.

Qualifications include up to high school graduation including or supplemented by courses in typewriting, word processing and standard commercial subjects as well as considerable experience as a Clerk Typist II; or an equivalent combination of training and experience. Considerable knowledge of modern office practices and procedures. Word processing, Microsoft Office and Excel skills are required. Thorough knowledge of business English, spelling, punctuation, and arithmetic. Sound knowledge of the applicable rules, regulations, policies and procedures which govern departmental activities; of the methods, practices and procedures used in operating computer terminal equipment to enter, revise, update and retrieve information, such as with EnerGov and SAP. The ability to understand and interpret oral and written instructions to produce moderately complex statements, reports, lists and documents required in the operations of the department; to compose non-routine letters and memoranda; to prepare, process and maintain a variety of permits, license applications and related materials;  and to make moderately complex computations and tabulations.  Skill in the operation of common office appliances; and in typing rapidly and accurately.
