 Job Description
  Annualized salary range $81,140 to $121,710 (appointment is typically made near the midpoint, which is $101,425, and is unlikely to exceed $115,000). Long Beach (population 462,000) is the seventh largest city in California and the second largest in Los Angeles County. The City has nearly 5,600 employees with a FY2012-13 total budget of $2.9 billion and a General Fund budget of $390 million. The Department of Financial Management has 130 employees. The Accounting Bureau is one of the largest bureaus in the Department with 34 budgeted positions. The Assistant City Controller is one of two such positions reporting to the City Controller, and will directly manage a team of 13 professional and non-professional staff.

Requires a relevant bachelor’s degree and a minimum of five years of progressively responsible experience, including at least two years at a management/supervisory level with responsibilities in financial management. Experience preparing a CAFR, along with experience with the more complex aspects of implementing GAAP, is essential. Desire a CPA and/or MBA, with project management experience similar in scope to managing an organization’s annual audit, single audit, or annual financial report preparation processes. While experience with a California general purpose local government would be a plus, candidates from all geographic areas will be considered. Commitment to remain with the City for a significant period of time is desired, as there are many projects and changes anticipated.
