Riverside has parted ways with City Manager John Russo following a split vote by the city council Tuesday night.
The Administrative Services Director is an integral part of our executive management team who reports directly to the City Manager and supports operations of every City department by managing the finance, budget, information technology, human resources, labor relations, negotiations, and risk management functions. The incumbent in this position oversees recruitment activities, advises Department Heads and the City Manager on complex personnel, budget and liability matters, and administers Worker’s Compensation claims. On the budget front, this is the person who projects and develops the annual City budget with the City Manager, manages the City’s financial operations, and monitors compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
The ideal candidate will have a comprehensive organizational view; be detail-oriented, collaborative and an innovative problem solver. This person is a self-starter with a strong customer-service orientation to the operating departments, employees, clients and general public. The successful candidate will have a positive attitude with a strong “can do” attitude that looks for solutions rather than problems.
SALARY: $96,720 - $131,856 annually plus excellent benefits, including City-paid medical (up to Kaiser family rate) and City-paid CalPERS (for Classic employees). Apply by February 4.
