CA RIVERSIDE COUNTY, CA | Temporary
Work involves responsibility for financial planning, budgeting, accounting, data processing, revenue administration, purchasing, and the billing and collecting of taxes, special assessments, and service charges for the agency. Work also involves serving as Chief Finance Officer to the General Manager; providing principal assistance to the General Manager in the preparation of his annual budget; providing advice to other city officials on financial matters. Work requires the independent application of the principles and practices of public finance administration with primary emphasis upon the formulation and execution of broad policies rather than upon immediate technical supervision and participation in the detailed activities of these operations.
The support staff in the Finance office is light, so our candidate would need to be less focused on staff oversight and more focused on rolling up their sleeves and doing the bulk of the work themself. There is an emphasized need that you have a strong background in budgeting.
Extensive progressively responsible experience in public finance administration, with considerable supervisory and administrative experience, and graduation from a four year college or university with major course work in accounting, public administration, business administration, or related field. MPA, MBA or CPA is preferable.
