Director of Corporate Services – Chief Financial Officer

The District of Central Saanich, located on the Saanich Peninsula of Southern Vancouver Island, is part of the Greater Victoria Area and enjoys the reputation of being among the best locations in Canada to work, live and play.  The District is bounded on both the east and west by ocean with many beach access points and is central to all amenities of the Greater Victoria area. This community of 17,000 residents has a vibrant, rural/small village character and includes the Tsawout and Tsartlip First Nations. With a progressive and stable Council and Leadership team in place, the District is taking important steps toward managing the long term sustainability of the community’s assets and services, and it requires an experienced Director of Corporate Services to lead a dedicated group of professionals in providing a broad range of services to internal and external stakeholders.

Reporting to the Chief Administrative Officer, and working collaboratively with the Senior Management Team, your key priorities will be to effectively lead the corporate services team in providing traditional financial services, information technology services, communication services, performance management services, human resources coordination services and special projects.  You value working in partnership with others to understand and master the complexities of the organization and contribute across departments and subject matter.

The ideal candidate will possess a University degree in Business or Public Administration, Commerce or a related field.  A professional accounting designation (CPA) would be an asset, however a professional designation in a related field or a suitable combination of education and experience will be considered.  You have 7 or more years experience providing financial management services or corporate or business services, preferably in a local government setting.

You will have demonstrated leadership abilities, value collaboration and commitment to team. You have demonstrated the ability to build and maintain effective working relationships. You appreciate the perspectives of others, have extensive project management skills and have led complex projects through multi-functional teams.  You thrive in a fast paced, multi-discipline environment. You anticipate challenges and can align and deliver results. You are flexible and willing to change priorities to meet changing deadlines.  Your analytical, problem solving and decision-making skills are a must for this multi-faceted role. Your ability to lead corporate services through a strategic and customer focused lens will be key to success.

The District is offering a competitive salary based on the qualifications and experience of the successful applicant, as well as a generous benefit and vacation package.  Interested candidates are invited to submit their resumes by September 24, 2019 to:
