Assistant Director of Public Works, Facilities and Parks

County of Monterey, CA

Monterey County encompasses some of California’s most stunning scenery and offers an ideal year round Mediterranean climate. Miles of beautiful beaches, spectacular mountain ranges, groves of redwoods, low-rolling foothills, and scenic valleys are characteristics that contribute to the quality of life enjoyed by over 447,000 residents and the numerous tourists who visit the area year-round. Monterey County boasts world-renowned attractions such as the spectacular Big Sur Coast, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row and the Steinbeck Center.

The new Assistant Director will join the department during a time of challenge and transition. Recent severe weather, combined with other natural disasters in the past years, has had a continual impact resulting in a large CIP backlog and workload of repair and replacement of roads, bridges, parks, and other infrastructure. The ongoing demand is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. A key aspect of this position is to proactively partner and coordinate with cities, regional agencies, and other counties in addressing critical infrastructure needs. Additional regional issues continue from the effects of severe burn scars from past devastating fires, also requiring a major focus on services. The impact of these natural disasters requires the Assistant Director to be totally engaged and dedicated to this role.

The appointed candidate will typically possess any combination of training, education and/or experience which provides the knowledge, skills, abilities and required conditions of employment. These requirements may be acquired with five or more years’ experience of senior-level operational or program management, preferably in a public works, facilities, parks, engineering, or similar department. A Bachelor’s degree in public administration, finance, engineering, or a related field is required, and a Master’s degree is highly desirable. Professional Engineer in civil engineering is highly desirable.
