The City is seeking an experienced professional who has expertise in municipal budgeting and performance management. In Vancouver, you can enjoy a high quality of life in a major metropolitan area and yet benefit from no state income tax and a lower cost of living.

With a population of over 180,000 residents, Vancouver, Washington sits on the north bank of the Columbia River directly across from Portland, Oregon. The Pacific Coast is less than 90 miles to the west and the Cascade Mountain Range rises on the east.

The ideal candidate will be experienced in managing an organization-wide budget with many unique, complex funds and revenue streams. The ability to make accurate forecasts is crucial. While general financial experience is helpful, a proven track record in budget management and/or accounting is most important. Having a sense for leveraging technology and personnel who can support the department’s needs will be helpful. The ideal candidate will be confident, capable, and a good communicator who enjoys leading initiatives without their work being checked. The candidate will join a talented staff with high morale, due in part to the independence and autonomy earned through trust. Independent thinking and the positive debate of opinions and ideas are encouraged.

Competitive candidates will possess a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration, Finance, Economics, or a related field, and six years of related experience in governmental administration and financial planning, including at least four years of complex governmental multi-fund revenue and expenditure forecasting and budget management. Two years of supervisory responsibility is required, although four years of management of a budget office is preferred. A master’s degree in Public Administration or a related field is highly desired.
