The Indian reservation on the south side of Phoenix, Arizona has reopened its search for its first Ombudsman. The position will "provide services which include being a liaison between Community Members and the Tribal Government, listening to citizens’ complaints when they think the Gila River Indian Community has treated them unfairly, and coaching, assisting, and investigating the complaints received from Community Members."
There are essential functions that are clearly outside the purview of an Organizational Ombuds (e.g.: "Investigate complex complaints from the public, make recommendations for actions to be taken where injustice has occurred as a result of maladministration, and provide a report to the complainant and to the entity investigated on the results of the investigation."). But, the job description indicates that the incumbent will develop policies for the position.
Requirements and compensation have not changed since the initial search. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree, four years experience in researching and analyzing, and "Certified Organizational Ombudsman Practitioner from the International Ombudsman Association must be obtained within two (2) years of employment."
The position pays $62,549 and applications are due by January 27, 2020. (GRIC Posting.)
