 Job Description
  The City of Las Vegas, Nevada, is seeking a new Director of Finance. Las Vegas, with a population of 594,294, is part of the nearly 600 square mile Las Vegas Valley, a basin landform in the Mojave Desert that contains the largest concentration of people in the state. An international tourist destination, the city of Las Vegas is known as the entertainment capital of the world.

The City of Las Vegas operates under a council-manager form of government with a mayor elected at-large and six City Council members who represent single member wards. The city has nearly 3,000 employees, and a total budget of $1.1 billion, including a general fund budget of $481.8 million, a capital projects budget of $232 million, and debt service funds totaling $48.3 million.

The Director of Finance reports to the Internal Services Chief/CFO, who in turn reports to the city manager. The director of Finance oversees four divisions: Accounting, Financial Services, Purchasing & Contracts, and Strategic Analysis & Reporting. The director of Finance has five direct reports: four division managers and an administrative secretary. The Finance Department has 63 employees and an annual operating budget of $8 million.

The successful candidate should have a Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Accounting, Public Administration, Business, or a related field, with a minimum of six years of increasingly responsible experience. A Master’s degree or CPA certification is preferred. At least two years of administrative and management experience is required, and work experience in a public or private organization of similar size and complexity is preferred.
