Job Description

About the Position

The County of San Luis Obispo is offering a career opportunity for an environmental professional to join an APWA accredited public works department managing our Environmental Division.  The Environmental Division Manager will join a team of 300 public works professionals who provide the full range of public works services across San Luis Obispo County.  Staff in the nine-person Environmental Division apply specialized skills in the areas of land use planning, resource law, biology, botany, wetlands, regulatory permitting, archaeology, and environmental restoration. The Division is a full-service environmental team, capable of processing complex State and federally funded projects entirely in house.  The Environmental Division is one of eleven divisions within the Department of Public Works and receives administrative, safety, and finance support from across the Department.

In addition to the technical strengths and experience necessary to direct the work of the Environmental Division and advise the Public Works leadership team regarding environmental permitting and compliance requirements, this position requires a leader who desires to make a difference in the health and well-being of the community, and who can teach and inspire the same passion in a group of public works professionals.  Are you someone who can effectively communicate with people about what it is we do? Do you get excited about the prospect of growing and motivating your team? Do you possess a relentless service ethic, a high level of personal accountability, and want to join an organization dedicated to being a valued community partner enhancing the quality of life for our fellow county residents? If so, you are encouraged to apply for this career opportunity.
