City of Bakersfield, California

Development Services Director
Annual salary range: $130,401 to $158,515
The City provides an array of benefits.
Application deadline: Open until filled.
Initial review of resumes: Monday, August 12, 2019.

Bakersfield is the ninth largest city in California. A new report from the National Association of Realtors rates Bakersfield in their top ten cities to live in for millennials, due to the relatively low cost of housing, minimal traffic, job growth and strong economic outlook. Bakersfield offers a vast array of restaurants and breweries, music festivals, hiking trails, lakes, museums, and a downtown art walk — exactly what you'd expect to find in a major up-and-coming city.

This is an exceptional opportunity for a forward-thinking individual to help shape the future of a thriving community that is committed to meaningful and strategic growth. As a result of a recent measure passed by residents, the Development Services Department was allocated an additional $13.5 million for FY 19/20 to recreate the City’s Economic Development Program and to establish a Homeless Housing, Initiatives, and Services Program. The new Development Services Director will play an instrumental role in the development of these two new programs and ultimately the future of Bakersfield overall.

The ideal candidate is an accomplished strategic leader in planning and community development who is excited by the opportunity and challenge of building two new significant programs.

To be considered, please submit a detailed resume, cover letter, and a list of six work-related references (who will not be contacted until the late stages of the recruitment and will be coordinated with the successful candidate). Your resume should indicate the size of staff and budgets you have managed and also reflect both years and months with regard to the employment dates for current and prior positions held. Please submit your materials through our website at: https://executivesearch.cpshr.us/JobDetail?ID=484
