The City of Long Beach, California, seeks its first Human Resources Manager – Business Systems Partner (Manager) to oversee the newly formed Systems Management Bureau within the Human Resources (HR) Department. This Bureau is responsible for working closely with the Technology & Innovation Department (TID) to initiate and implement new technologies to deliver high quality HR services in a more efficient manner. This highly motivated, creative leader will initially oversee an approximate budget of $793K and four highly talented staff with the expectation that this Division can grow to up to nine staff. The successful candidate will have a strong background in IT systems implementation and maintenance, ideally with a working knowledge of Human Capital Management (HCM).

If you have the technical expertise and leadership skills to succeed in this role, apply today!


The ideal candidate is not expected to have worked directly within an HR Department but must have a strong technical background in public sector, ideally with knowledge of HR systems. They will be eager to lead a team and collaborate with other City leaders and managers and will work to continually maintain and advance IT infrastructure, equipment, applications, and security in the Department. The successful candidate will have the ability to consult with other staff to determine their needs and work closely with their own team to develop staff’s skillsets. While overseeing staff and delegating responsibilities, they will also be a hands-on working manager who demonstrates a high level of motivation and proficiency in IT project management principles. They will serve as a respectable representative of the Department while working with employees, vendors, outside agencies, contractors and consultants, and the public. Someone with the ability to balance personnel management with the technological functions required will excel in this role.
