Position Highlights

The Deschutes County Circuit Court in Bend, Oregon, is hiring a Court Support Supervisor (Supervisor 3).

As a member of the court’s management team, you will analyze the effectiveness of work unit operations, participate in weekly meetings, and bring issues to the team in an honest, constructive, and solution-oriented manner. You will develop and implement new court policies, procedures, and forms, and you will implement changes to existing court procedures in response to statutory changes or customer service needs. You will also foster strong working relationships with judges, court staff, public and private-sector agencies, upper-level managers, external stakeholders, and community partners to help increase our court’s effectiveness.

As a supervisor, you will create and update position descriptions, conduct job interviews and reference checks, develop training materials and documentation, conduct training for new and existing employees, and motivate and coach your staff. You will approve timesheets, conduct performance appraisals, maintain employee records, identify and resolve issues, assign and set priorities for staff work assignments, review completed work for accuracy and timeliness, and counsel and discipline staff as necessary. You will also schedule and attend monthly work unit meetings, keep staff informed about changes to laws, rules, policies, and procedures, and supervise the Juvenile Hearings Officer program to ensure the proper handling of caseloads.

Part of your time will be spent resolving complex issues regarding appellate transcripts, retaining and dispositioning exhibits within prescribed policies and timelines, monitoring individual workloads to ensure the court is meeting mandatory deadlines and performance measures, and teaching staff about our business continuity plan, evacuation strategies, and emergency procedures.
