County of Ventura, California

Salary: $200,518 –  $280,726 annually, plus benefits


Closing Date: Continuous until sufficient resumes are received to meet business needs. First review of resumes to be reviewed on August 13, 2018.


Ventura County is located on California’s “Gold Coast”, approximately 35 miles northwest of Los Angeles and 20 miles southeast of Santa Barbara.  Residents enjoy    rolling hills and sweeping ocean views in a nearly perfect Mediterranean climate with an average annual temperature of 74.2 degrees.  The beauty and weather combined with a wonderful quality of life are among the many reasons our residents choose to call Ventura County “home”. 


The County Chief Financial Officer (CFO) assumes overall responsibility for the County's fiscal operations and manages the Countywide budget process including compilation, balancing and issuance of the Preliminary Budget for the annual budget hearings.



This is an outstanding opportunity for a seasoned professional with a substantial record of financial        management experience overseeing work including budget development and analysis, fiscal forecasting, financial and workload monitoring, cost accounting, reimbursement, funding programs, and fiscal systems. While such experience may be gained in a local government environment, experience gained in other public or private environments may also be of great value.  A Master’s degree in a related field is highly desirable.


First review of resumes will begin on August 13, 2018.
