Fresno County represents the ultimate yet affordable California lifestyle at it’s finest! Nestled in the state’s Central Valley, the area is well known for its proximity to the majestic National Parks of Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia. The region is also situated at the base of the awesome Sierra Nevada Mountains, providing active pursuits such as hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, boating, and snow boarding opportunities. The entire region enjoys an exceptionally favorable cost of living. Housing is especially affordable with a wide selection of fine homes within urban, suburban, rural and foothill communities. The area’s public schools enjoy an excellent reputation, both academically and athletically with several being ranked among the best in the state.
The Road Maintenance and Operations Division Manager will lead a division of 247 team members charged with maintaining, preserving, and operating the largest County public road system in the State of California. The vast network of 3,488 miles of roadway and 570 bridges provide a wide range of logistical, operational, and geographic challenges for the position and the division. Organizationally, the new leader will bring a charismatic, strategic, and innovative approach in coalescing the collective efforts of the geographically disbursed staff. Providing a foundation for open, active communication in sharing critical information, introducing more effective operational solutions, enhancing staff development and establishing a culture of excellent customer service are essential aspects of this role. The operational focus is the development and implementation of a comprehensive work plan that includes clear and defined approaches and measurable results geared to preserve and improve the county road and bridge network.
This position requires a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering or a closely related field and five years of full-time, paid work experience supervising staff responsible for the construction or maintenance of roads and bridges. Additional years of qualifying experience may substitute for the required education on a year- for-year basis, where one year of experience is equivalent to 30 semester units of coursework.
