The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) is seeking a Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) due to the upcoming retirement of the current incumbent. Located in the BC Central interior, the CRD consists of twelve electoral areas and the four incorporated municipalities of Quesnel, Williams Lake, 100 Mile House and Wells. The CRD serves a population of over 60,000 residents, and provides a varied and interesting range of major services and programs including fire protection, recreation, library, waste management and utility systems. This region is one of the most spectacularly beautiful in BC, and offers a high quality lifestyle with modern amenities, virtually unlimited outdoor and indoor recreational opportunities, and very affordable real estate with a wide range of residential housing options. The principal office of the CRD is located in Williams Lake.
This is an excellent career opportunity for an energetic, innovative and forward thinking manager who has had prior experience working in the complex but stimulating environment of regional districts in BC, and who puts a premium on high quality service delivery to the public, to the entire Regional Board and to a dedicated staff team. Well-developed prioritization and time management skills will be essential, combined with the ability to balance the achievement of the Board’s longer term strategic priorities with the efficient and cost effective day to day running of the organization. Strong human resource skills and a track record of building solid community relationships, including with First Nations, are also desired qualities which the Board wishes to see in the new CAO. The ideal candidate will have ten years’ experience working in a BC regional district in a progressively more responsible senior management capacity, combined with professional certification in local government or a degree in public or business administration. Previous working experience in a rural, resource based environment would also be a definite asset.
