Director of Facilities & Grounds

Full Time Regular Exempt

Excellent people.  Awesome Benefits.  Great Wages.

With a population of 21,000 and growing, Fort St. John is the largest city in Northeastern BC.  Fort St. John is “The Energetic City” for good reason.  The title reflects not only our large resource base of oil, natural gas, forestry and agriculture, but also the vitality of our residents whose median age of just over 30, makes it one of the youngest municipalities in Canada.

The Director of Facilities and Grounds is a member of the senior management team and is directly responsible for the administration of operations, maintenance and project management within the Facilities and Grounds Department.  The work that is performed is highly responsible, professional and entails the development of short and long range plans.  The position requires organizing and technical direction of the various activities of the City as it relates to City building facilities, parks, trails and cemeteries. 

Qualified candidates should have a diploma, degree, or professional designation (such as Project Management Professional) in a related field coupled with seven to ten years of experience in a senior managerial capacity.  This position requires knowledge of standard local government competitive procurement practices, quotes, tenders and requests for proposals.  Candidates must have strong project management and planning skills related to civic
properties and knowledge of the construction industry and familiarity with MMCD and CCDC contract administration.  A valid Class 5 BC Driver’s License and the ability to obtain enhanced security clearance is also required.

We offer a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package for this full-time exempt position. 

 Interested applicants are requested to send their resume AND covering letter to the undersigned prior to 4:00 p.m., Friday, January 17, 2020.
