Application deadline: Monday, February 6, 2017
Located at the base of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains – where the Rocky Mountains meet the Great Plains – Boulder is a destination location known for its natural beauty, commitment to sustainability and progressive policies. Nestled 35 miles northwest of Denver at an elevation of 5,430 feet, Boulder (pop. 103,000) is world-renowned for its spectacular scenery that includes more than 45,000 acres of open space. This is an exceptional opportunity for a well-rounded finance professional with in-depth knowledge and experience in governmental finance to contribute to the success of this high-performing organization and vibrant community.
Reporting to the Chief Financial Officer, the Assistant Director of Finance assists the CFO in leading and overseeing all financial activities within the Finance Department including accounting, accounts payable, accounts receivable, treasury, investments, budget, debt issuance and management, payroll, licensing, tax collection, tax auditing, purchasing, internal auditing, the city’s pension plans, risk management, ERP support management, and mail room. The City operates under a decentralized environment where some financial functions are located within other City departments and are not directly supervised by the CFO/Assistant Director. As such, the Assistant Director must possess strong interpersonal skills, tact, and the ability to build cooperative working relationships with other employees, departments/divisions, external entities, and the public in delivering effective and innovative services. A Bachelor’s degree in accounting, finance, or related field and a minimum of five years of experience in financial leadership and management are required. Desirable qualifications include a relevant graduate degree and other advanced training in financial or administrative areas (including CPA and/or CPFO certification). Governmental finance experience is also highly desirable.
