County Re-advertises Human Resources Manager Position

Staff Report

Los Alamos County is looking for a new human resources manager following the departure of recently hired Jennifer Dorian.

County Manager Harry Burgess told the Los Alamos Daily Post today that the position is being re-advertised.

Dorian worked for the County from Jan. 11 to March 29, filling the vacancy created with the retirement of longtime HR Manager Denise Cassel.

Burgess issued an email to all County employees on March 30 with the following message:

Jennifer Dorian, our HR Manager hired in January to replace Denise Cassel upon her retirement, submitted her resignation to me yesterday afternoon. She has accepted another offer of employment. Her resignation is effective immediately, and so we will be posting a job ad shortly in our search for a new HR Manager. Although Jennifer’s time working for the County was brief, she indicated that her decision to leave was that she felt her background and capabilities are simply better aligned with the job offer she received after taking the position here. 

Mary Tapia will be acting HR Manager until we can fill the position. Thanks in advance of your support and understanding as HR staff navigate through this unexpected change. I will continue to keep you posted.
