City of Fort Worth, Texas

Assistant Director of Human Resources
Hiring salary range: $100,000 to $140,000
Application deadline: Friday, December 2, 2022.

The City of Fort Worth, or otherwise known as the “City of Cowboys & Culture”, is at the heart of true Texas hospitality and western heritage! As the 12th largest city in the U.S., Fort Worth is home to over 900,000 residents representing culturally diverse communities. Located in north central Texas, Fort Worth is designated as one of America’s “Most Livable Communities” and truly offers a melting pot of culture, commerce, community and yes, cowboys. While keeping the small-town charm that keeps it unpretentious and charismatic in all the right ways, Fort Worth is the 2nd fastest growing city in the nation and the #1 tourist destination in Texas and welcomes more than 9.4 million visitors annually.

The City of Fort Worth's Human Resources Department is looking for a new Assistant Director that will have two direct reports, and a total of 23 FTEs within these divisions: Benefits and Wellness Administration, Organizational Development, Talent Acquisition and HR Business Partners. This position will bring a strong focus to the administration of benefits and wellness in a self-insured environment and partner with an external provider on managing City dedicated healthcare centers.

The Assistant Director will also be responsible for monitoring and evaluating the quality, responsiveness, efficiency, and effectiveness of assigned human resources programs, and working on the continuous improvement of city services. The City of Fort Worth is self-insured, and this role will be dedicated to its employees’ well-being by providing market-competitive health benefits, a well-rounded wellness program offering tools and support for a healthier lifestyle, with an emphasis on total compensation, and ensuring the City operates and maintains a strategic approach to delivering a menu of benefits appropriate for the workforce and staying abreast of pension changes.

This role will also work in partnership with City departments to hire and retain high-performing people using a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens, as well as helping to identify and enhance the skills of the employees through training and development opportunities to prepare them to advance in their careers at the City. Previous local government experience is a plus, but not required for this role.

Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with major course work in human resources management, industrial relations, public administration, or a related field and six (6) years of increasingly responsible human resources experience including three (3) years of administrative and supervisory responsibility. Experience working in municipal government human resources is a plus. A professional certification, such as PHR, SPHR, SHRM-CP, SHRM SCP, IPMA-CP, or IPMA-SCP is desirable.
