Director of Finance

City of Cedar Hill, TX

Nestled 20 minutes southwest of downtown Dallas, the City of Cedar Hill borders the eastern shore of Joe Pool Lake and Cedar Hill State Park. This thriving suburb’s lush, tree-lined rolling hills and wide-open green space allow for hikes, bike rides and other outdoor recreational opportunities, and from specialty boutiques in historic downtown to enjoying a day on Joe Pool Lake, the community has found a perfect balance of big-city amenities and small-town charm.

Cedar Hill is a home-rule community governed by a council-manager form of government with a mayor and six council members serving as its legislative body. Together, they focus on community goals, major projects, and strategic planning. The City Manager provides day-to-day executive leadership and administration to the municipal organization.

The Finance Department provides professional and fiscally prudent management of all City assets by managing, recording, safeguarding, organizing, and planning for future financial needs. Under the direction of the City Manager and in accord with Cedar Hill’s organizational values, goals, ethics, and leadership philosophy, the Director of Finance is responsible for the leadership and management of all City financial operations, including planning, organizing, and controlling financial resources and expenditure processes.

The City of Cedar Hill is seeking an innovative, community-oriented servant leader ready to join its municipal family as the next Director of Finance. This position requires a bachelor’s degree in finance, accounting, or a related field, with a master’s degree in management or public administration preferred. Candidates must also have at least seven years of related experience. Certification as a Public Accountant and/or a Government Finance Officer is a plus.

The salary range for this position is up to $175,000, depending on the experience and qualifications of the successful candidate.
