Job Posting: University of California, Office of the President

The systemwide headquarters of the University of California is hiring its first Ombudsperson. The position reports to the UC President's Chief of Staff and will establish an Ombuds program for about 3,000 staff members in Oakland and throughout California. In addition, the UC Office of the President Ombuds "Collaborates and facilitates communication amongst Ombuds Office locations throughout the UC system to identify and report systemwide trends and issues." This could indicate a significant change for other UC campus Ombuds Offices, which have operated autonomously and cooperatively, but relatively estranged from the Office of the President. In 2015, UCOP conducted a search for a part-time Ombuds and, although there were several qualified finalists, the position was never filled.

Preferred qualifications for applicants include:
  • Comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the Office of the President;
  • Extensive experience providing Organizational Ombuds services at a university or college;
  • At least six years of supervisory/management and Ombuds/conflict resolution experience;
  • Advanced Ombuds and mediation training; and
  • An advanced degree.
No salary indicated. Applications will be reviewed starting October 17, 2020. (UCOP Careers.)
