The City of Roseville, CA with approximately 135,000 residents, is the largest city in Placer County and receives accolades each year for a variety of distinctions—from best place to raise a family, start a business, buy a first home, and retire; to most playful city, healthiest city, and one of the lowest cost places in California to do business.
The City seeks a visionary and progressive leader for their new Director of Economic Development. The incumbent will bring a high level of energy and commitment to the Department, the organization, and to the community as a whole. The ideal candidate will possess strong leadership skills and the ability to create a team-oriented environment that emphasizes cooperation, accountability, and responsiveness in order to achieve the goals and objectives of the Department. The new Director will possess excellent interpersonal skills. He/she will create an open, collaborative, and successful working relationship with the City Council, community groups, developers, and other City executives. Someone who is politically astute, yet apolitical and has the ability to establish trust with these entities is essential.
At a minimum, candidates must possess a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with major course work in planning, engineering, public administration, or a closely related field, and have six (6) years of increasingly responsible experience in economic development, community development, planning or a closely related field including two years of administrative and management/project management responsibility. Possession of a valid California Driver’s License is also required by date of appointment.
The annual salary range for the incoming Economic Development Director is $149,499-$200,343; placement within this range is dependent upon qualifications and experience.
