SENIOR STENOGRAPHER

NATURE OF WRK

This is advanced general clerical work, involving the taking and tran-
scribing of oral dictation.

Work involves responsibility for performing varied stenographic and
clerical tasks of considerable complexity. Initiative and judgment are re-
quired in dealing with unusual problems and in applying a knowledge of de-
partmental procedures to routine problems and assignments. Amount and kind
of dictation taken and transcribed varies. The difficulty and responsibil-
ity of the clerical work performed, rather than stenographic skill, is the
factor distinguishing this from the beginning level stenographer position.
Work is performed with relative independence of action with only limited re-
view or supervision except in new or unusual assignments. Employees in this
class act in an advisory capacity to other clerical employees and may assign
and review their work.
