The City of Doraville, Georgia is seeking an experienced, dynamic, critical thinker who has the essential knowledge of legislative methods and procedures and superior organizational skills to be its next City Clerk. Doraville, with an approximate population of 10,500, is a full-service city (except Fire Rescue and Water and Sewer services which are provided by DeKalb County). Doraville while being considered a small city is experiencing tremendous redevelopment and the renaissance of a large cosmopolitan city. We look back to preserve our history but are surging forward to reach our visualized destiny.
The City of Doraville is known for its diversity, particularly its multicultural character with populations from Asia-Pacific and Latin countries.
The new Doraville City Clerk will need to enjoy being a “working” leader; which will require the ability to involve his/herself in all detailed aspects of the City Clerk’s Office while being steadfastly strategic.  The desired candidate must have a combination of both education and relevant experience. Needed is a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college in public administration, business administration, public policy, political science, or related discipline. Also required is at least five years of increasing responsible administrative or legislative assistant or paralegal experience, of which two to three years must have been in a management position with a municipal, county, or state government agency. The City will consider an equivalency of a mix of the education and experience. Be a Certified City Clerk or the ability to obtain designation within two years of employment.
All inquiries and applications will be kept confidential until an appropriate time in the selection process. The position will be open until filled; however, resumes will start to be reviewed as they are received.
