The Presidio Trust is a federal employer, and all Trust employees are federal employees. Trust employment policies and procedures are, however, somewhat different from most federal agencies. The Presidio Trust Act gives the Trust more authority to establish its own human resources policies and procedures. Employment with the Trust is in the excepted service, rather than the competitive service. Under the Trust's establishing legislation, the Trust is authorized to appoint, compensate, and terminate employees without regard to the provisions of Title 5 or other laws related to the appointment, compensation, and termination of federal employees. The Presidio Trust pays its employees based upon a pay banding system and does not have general schedule (GS) or wage grade (WG) positions.
Employment opportunities are announced in the classified employment ads of the Sunday editions of the San Francisco Chronicle/Examiner; weekly editions of the Sun Reporter, El Mensajero, El Bohemio, Asian Week, and the SF Bay View News. Copies of all job announcements are also mailed to more than 40 minority community organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Unsolicited applications are accepted, but it is recommended that interested applicants apply for specific positions that have been announced as employment opportunities. Information regarding current job openings can be obtained by calling (415) 561-5405, or by stopping by the Presidio Trust reception desk at 103 Montgomery Street in the Presidio of San Francisco.
The Trust does not discriminate in employment opportunities or practices on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, marital status, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by law. The Trust will reasonably accommodate qualified individuals with known disabilities for employment, unless doing so would result in an undue hardship to the agency.
