Position: Chief Administrative Officer
Municipality: District of North Saanich
Location: North Saanich, Greater Victoria BC

The Municipal Council of North Saanich has initiated an Executive Search for its next talented and creative Chief Administrative Officer, following the planned retirement of the present incumbent effective early in the year 2019.

North Saanich is an exceptional jewel of a community, located on the northern tip of the Saanich Peninsula with strong traditional roots and historical values, a half hour from the City of Victoria.

The District is composed of an attractive mix of rural farmland, high end residential properties, and a vibrant industrial and marine commercial base, surrounded by the Salish Sea with Central Saanich to the south and the highly urbanized Town of Sidney to the east. North Saanich is also a major transportation hub, home to BC Ferries, and the Victoria International Airport.

Council will be looking for a high degree of collaboration, innovative ideas, and original solutions from an exceptional and seasoned Public Sector Manager. This individual will lead a small talented staff effectively balancing the needs of the diverse residents, with an eye to maintaining and enhancing the values and character of the District, while still achieving a strong financial balance. The Council has initiated several large projects which are close to fruition and the new CAO will be occupied with their completion and promise during the coming years.

If you are ready to take on this challenging and rewarding leadership role, forward your resume and cover letter with a minimum of three (3) related references to James R. Craven & Associates, by 4:30 pm on Friday, Nov.2, 2018.
