The City of Doraville, Georgia is seeking an experienced, dynamic, critical thinker who has the essential parks management knowledge and skills to be its next Director of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs. 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 Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs will need to enjoy being a “working” leader; which will require the ability to involve his/herself in all detailed aspects of the City recreation, parks, and cultural activities while being steadfastly strategic. The desired candidate must have a Bachelor’s degree in recreation and parks management, business administration, public administration, or related field and seven (7) to ten (10) years of progressively responsible professional experience, including five (5) years of managerial experience. Also, experience with developing and managing a public arts program and working with community-based organizations would be a plus.
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.
