Director of Public Works


Posted: Apr. 2, 2018

End Date: Apr. 27, 2018

The City of Doraville, Georgia is seeking an experienced, dynamic, critical thinker who has the essential knowledge of public works operations and superior management skills to be its next Director of Public Works. 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 Director of Public Works will need to enjoy being a “working” leader; which will require the ability to involve his/herself in all detailed aspects of public works operations while being steadfastly strategic.  The desired candidate must have considerable administrative and operational public works experience; graduation from a four-year college with major in civil engineering, transportation planning or other related fields; or an equivalent combination of experience and training that would reasonably lead to success as Director of Public Works. While not required, but a plus is experience working on economic development projects.

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. For more information, please visit our website at http://www.doravillega.us/departments/city_manager/exec_recruit.php
