An outstanding executive career opportunity awaits a talented finance professional in one of the nation’s premiere resort communities. The City of Big Bear Lake is located a short distance from the Los Angeles Metropolitan area and attracts a large number of visitors from Southern California and beyond. Serving a full-time population of just over 5,000 residents, the City covers an area of approximately 6.95 square miles on Big Bear Lake’s south shore. The City is organized to provide services for many, many more than its permanent population. As such, it has a much larger budget, staff, and capacity than cities of comparable size. Reporting to the Director of Government Services, the Finance Manager oversees six staff who perform accounting, revenue analysis, grant monitoring and reimbursement, budget, accounts payable/receivable, and preparation for the annual audit and Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. Any combination of experience and education that would likely provide the required knowledge and abilities is qualifying. A typical way to obtain the knowledge and abilities would be a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university in accounting, finance, public/business administration, or a closely related field; along with six years of increasingly responsible professional experience involving municipal accounting, auditing, budgeting, financial analysis, and/or economic forecasting (including four years of direct work experience with preparation of a public agency budget and the CAFR), and a minimum of four years supervisory experience. A Master’s degree is highly desirable. The annual salary range is $105,000-$120,000, DOQ. The City offers an excellent benefits package including San Bernardino County Employees Retirement Association (SBCERA), a well-funded system that offers reciprocity to other plans including CalPERS. The City currently offers a formula of 2% @ 55 with prior qualifying public service or, effective January 1, 2013, a formula of 2.5% @ 67 for new participants.
