This an exceptional opportunity for an experienced, hands-on risk management leader to oversee a comprehensive risk management program and recommend strategies with the objective of safeguarding the City’s financial, physical, and natural assets against the effects of loss.

Known as the “Capital of Silicon Valley,” the City of San Jose plays a vital economic and cultural role anchoring the world’s leading region of innovation. At the southern tip of the San Francisco Bay, San Jose is Northern California’s largest city and the 10th largest city in the nation. Surrounded by the Diablo and Santa Cruz mountain ranges, with easy access to the California coast, San Jose has received accolades for its vibrant neighborhoods, healthy lifestyle, and diverse attractions.

The successful candidate will recommend strategies for protecting the City against all financial exposures and risks.

The ideal candidate will be an experienced risk management professional with a significant background in a similarly complex organization, preferably with experience in a public agency setting. While strong technical skills/experience in risk management are critical, successful candidates will be forward-thinkers who are proactive in anticipating problems and planning ahead to avoid difficulties.
