SHELTON — While Mason County department heads face hard decisions such as hiring freezes, layoffs and service cuts, the county’s Human Resources Department is hiring.
During the county’s February hiring freeze, county Human Resources Manager Dawn Twiddy sent out a notice announcing three newly created positions to displaced personnel, encouraging them to apply for newly created job openings in the county’s Support Services Department.
Twiddy said county department managers and elected officials could “reorganize” their departments to help them meet their budget cut targets.
Support services recently laid off at least three positions — a grant writer, a financial analyst and a human resource analyst. New positions created are financial analyst, human resource analyst and risk manager/loss control coordinator.
Twiddy said the new positions were offered to all employees targeted to be laid off at the end of July.
See the attached PDF of the email notice announcing the newly created positions and copies of the new job descriptions, to some of the personnel affected by the budget reductions.
