Project Review
The increased scope of development projects and redevelopment projects in San Francisco requires a Real Estate Analyst with a high level of analytical and real estate expertise to review and comment on deadline-driven street vacations, easement vacations, proposed subdivision maps and other documents regarding potential impacts upon the SFPUC. This endeavor often involves significant research where there is no record of the SFPUC’s existing utilities in the land.

Easement Recovery Project
The SFPUC’s Wastewater Enterprise maintains its sewer assets in public streets and in easements through private land in San Francisco. The SFPUC lacks real estate records for a number of its sewer assets.

Conviction History

If you receive a conditional offer of employment, you will be fingerprinted, and your fingerprints will be sent to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The resulting report of your conviction history (if any) will be used to determine whether the nature of your conviction (or arrest, in limited circumstances) conflicts with the specific duties and responsibilities of the job for which you were given a conditional offer of employment. If a conflict exists, you will be asked to present any evidence of rehabilitation that may mitigate the conflict, except when federal or state regulations bar employment in specific circumstances, such as:

• Candidates for positions with the Unified School District and the Community College District may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under the California Education Code.
• Candidates for positions with the Recreation and Park Department may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under California Public Resources Code 5164.

Having a conviction history does not automatically preclude you from a job with the City.

If you receive a conditional offer of employment, the hiring department will contact you to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.
