Known as New Brunswick’s largest town, Riverview is a progressive and thriving community located on the south bank of the Petitcodiac River. With its quality lifestyle, it is one of three communities which encompass the Greater Moncton region. As a town experiencing significant residential expansion, Riverview is seeking an experienced municipal leader to assume the challenging role of Chief Administrative Officer.
What qualities are needed as CAO?
To begin with, you must be a strong and decisive leader with a solid understanding of all aspects of municipal administration including parks and recreation, engineering and public works, finance, human resources, labour negotiations, emergency services and economic development.
As the main interface with Council, you will be well-informed of governance practices in a political environment. Under their strategic direction, you will provide sound leadership in developing and implementing policies and programs that meet the needs of residents and other stakeholders.
Your style is open, you listen well, and you “get” that everyone has a voice in the future of Riverview. Personally, you are comfortable with high-profile, controversial files and you handle these situations with poise, confidence, and, most important, integrity.
A strong leader of people, you will support departmental directors and all staff in achieving their performance objectives. You will liaise with stakeholders, neighbouring municipalities, and other levels of government on key issues affecting the Town and the region.
A detailed position description is available upon request.
