We invite you to learn more about joining our team as the Director of Housing…

The Town of Vail is far from being just another municipality. Vail, which is centrally located in the Rocky Mountains, offers easy access to Denver and is surrounded by the White River National Forest, offering world class outdoor activities in summer and winter (skiing, snowboarding, hiking, biking, white water). Vail has become not only a great place to visit, but an even better place to live.

When it comes to making an impact, the Town of Vail offers unparalleled opportunity to do so in our spectacular mountain community. Due to our growth and dedication to community the Town of Vail is now hiring a Housing Director, to drive the town’s mission and efforts as the leader in resort community housing policy and practice.

This is an exciting opportunity to lead a newly created department (the current housing administration is enveloped within the Community Development Department) and make immediate contribution toward this highly-prioritized program.

The housing director works with many stakeholders such as Town Council, internal departments, consultants, developers, architects, the Housing Authority, and community members to ensure that projects and programs are well planned and executed, on time, and within budget. Examples of job duties & opportunities include:
