Diocese of Fresno
Employment Type
Full Time

The Office of Human Resources is one of several pastoral and administrative support functions
that assist the Bishop of the Diocese of Fresno to administer the pastoral, governing, and
administrative responsibilities of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fresno (Diocese).
Organizationally, all administrative support functions, including the chancery, formation and
evangelization, finance, human resources, education, communications, properties, information
technology, and facilities are assigned to the Pastoral Center, the collective diocesan governing
entity. The administrators and department heads overseeing these offices/departments
execute their respective duties and responsibilities as “ministers” of the Catholic Church and in
concert with the Bishop’s pastoral, governing, and administrative direction.
The Office of Human Resources, headed by the Director of Human Resources, provides both
centralized and decentralized administrative oversight of all human resources programs and
services including employment services, recruitment and examination, labor relations,
classification and pay, staff development and training, progressive discipline, discrimination
complaint/resolution, workplace investigations, administration of medical leaves of absences,
administration of human resources records and files, and special projects. All human resources
programs and services are administered pursuant to and consistent with the teachings and
doctrines of the Catholic Church and, where applicable, state and federal law.
Within this setting, the Director of Human Resources is responsible for administering all aspects
of the Office of Human Resources including planning, developing, executing, and overseeing all
human resources staff, programs, and services. In addition, the incumbent is responsible for
developing, implementing, evaluating, and interpreting human resources policy and
procedures; communicating best practices to parish pastors/administrators, school
administrators, Catholic Charities administrators, and Pastoral Center office/department heads;
providing conflict resolution and mediation services to parishes, schools, Catholic Charities, and
Pastoral Center offices/departments; management of the human resources budget; internal
and external staff development and training programs; workplace investigations; and special
projects as assigned by the Bishop or the Vicar General. Since the incumbent is responsible for
executing duties and responsibilities pursuant to and in accordance with the teachings and
doctrines of the Catholic Church, and under the pastoral direction of the Bishop, he/she is
designated a “minister” of the Catholic Church. Consequently, the incumbent must be a
practicing Catholic in good standing and living within the teachings of the Catholic Church as
determined by the Bishop of the Diocese of Fresno, or his designee.
