Chief Administrative Officer

Penticton, BC

Working for the City of Penticton means we raise families where others come for their vacation. Our home offers the best beaches, cycling trails, parks, recreation facilities and mountain escapes, not to mention all the shopping and amenities a vibrant community needs.

As our Chief Administrative Officer you have the opportunity to leave a lasting mark on an evolving municipality, working with an amazing group of dedicated people. As the sole employee of Mayor and Council, you can be confident that your influence, focused direction, advocacy and decisive vision will shape the growth of this thriving City.

Our ideal candidate recognizes the importance adept organizational leadership plays in delivering the very highest level of public service, and continually looks for new and innovative approaches to fulfilling the City’s objectives. Given your visionary nature, you bring a proven and highly successful track record of leading both the strategic and operational aspects of a complex organization within a multi-stakeholder environment. With your entrepreneurial spirit, you have the ability to advance an organization within the complexities of a public sector environment and are skilled at working with City staff, Mayor and Council, the Public, industry, government and media – all in the interest of advancing the interests of our unique Community.

Strong local government management experience in a comparable position, potentially strengthened with a private sector business background, and relevant post secondary education, firmly support your candidacy. Your credentials highlight a senior executive and accomplished leader who is ready to work within a community undergoing rapid change. Finally, our ideal candidate is a team builder and critical thinker with sound political judgement and excellent communication and human resource skills.
