APPRAISER I/II County of San Mateo

APPRAISER I/II - County of San Mateo
$5,337 - $7,375/Month

The Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder and Chief Elections Officer for the County of San Mateo is seeking qualified candidates for the position of Appraiser I/II. This is an exciting time to join a hard-working, high-functioning team of appraiser and assessor professionals. The Assessor's Office is currently involved in several major projects, including the development of a new Assessor Property Assessment System, and the appraisal and assessment of several large-scale commercial, manufacturing, research and development, and mixed-use developments being built throughout San Mateo County.

In general, Appraisers make site visits to properties to obtain, process, and analyze data for timely completion of the valuations of real and personal property for tax assessment purposes. Appraisers may be required to prepare appraisal cases for assessment appeals and should be willing to attend, and if necessary, present at appeals hearings.

Appraiser I is the entry-level in the Appraiser series. Initially, under close supervision, incumbents are trained in making appraisals of single family residential, modest residential-income, neighborhood commercial, light industrial, simple rural and routine personal properties. As experience is gained, there is greater independence of action and decision making within general guidelines. This class is flexibly staffed with Appraiser II and incumbents are expected to advance to the higher level after gaining experience and demonstrating proficiency. At the Appraiser II level, a qualified applicant will be fully competent to independently complete appraisals of all types of property and interests. While commercial appraisal experience is not required, it is a plus.

Generally, two years of experience completing property appraisals and performing audits of tangible and taxable property for tax assessment purposes is expected for the advancement from Appraiser I to Appraiser II. However, promotions may occur before two years with the recommendation and approval of managers and the department head. 

The County offers a comprehensive training program for those interested in making a career of Appraisal and Assessment Services. A career ladder exists with promotional opportunities from the Appraiser I level to the Appraiser II, Senior Appraiser and Principal Appraiser levels. Executive management positions include Chief Appraiser and Deputy Appraiser.

The ideal candidate for this opportunity will:

  • Have a positive, "never-say-never" attitude
  • Challenge themselves
  • Add to the team
  • Be competent in using computers and computer software in accordance with the duties of the job
  • Complete their work efficiently, thoroughly and confidently
  • Communicate effectively both verbally and in writing
  • Actively participate in process improvement projects

In addition, the ideal candidate will be:

  • A fast learner
  • Adaptable to a rapidly changing work environment
  • Interested in professional growth and development
  • Organized and decisive
  • An analytical thinker
  • Open to feedback, supervision and training
  • Technologically savvy
  • Excited about the job

Under the Revenue and Taxation Code any person performing the duties of an appraiser for property tax purposes as an employee of the state, any county, or any city and county, must hold a valid appraiser's certificate issued by the California State Board of Equalization (Board). As part of employment with the County, new employees will apply for a temporary appraiser certificate. Possession of a temporary appraiser certificate allows one to perform the duties of an appraiser until permanently certified. A temporarily certified appraiser must obtain permanent certification within the one-year period in order to continue performing appraisal duties. As part of the training program for new appraisers, the County will assist new employees with the preparation for permanent certification. However, taking and passing the certification exam is the ultimate responsibility of the employee. 

To be eligible for a temporary appraiser certificate, an applicant must be able to meet the employment experience and/or education requirements outlined by the Board of Equalization as described below:

  • Have a Bachelor's degree from an accredited four-year institution of higher learning; or
  • Be a high school graduate (or equivalent) and have four years of relevant experience; or
  • Possess a combination of education and relevant experience totaling four years.

Final Filing Deadline:  July 23, 2018
