The Presidio Trust is seeking a Director of Planning and Compliance to lead our newly formed Planning and Compliance Department in the Presidio. An unusual federal agency, the Presidio Trust runs the only national park site in the United States that has the flexibility to earn and use our own revenue. Each year we earn in excess of $100 million through our business ventures, yet we still have more buildings to renovate and new business opportunities to pursue. We invest our revenue into our historic forest, dunes, streams, trails and designed landscapes, into our hundreds of historic buildings, park-wide infrastructure, into visitor programs and amenities, and into our people, to make this magnificent place come alive for our park visitors.
Our ideal candidate is a creative and visionary leader that is committed to public service and comfortable working with all types of staff and members of the public. You have outstanding interpersonal, public relations, written, and oral communication skills, and you can work effectively with a diverse array of officials, staff, members of the public, and other customers. You have strong problem-solving and negotiation skills, and demonstrated experience managing high-profile, sensitive and controversial political situations. If you possess these skills, as well as sound and independent judgment, we want you on our team in advancing our strategic goals and guiding the transformation of the Presidio into a world class national park!
Applications received by February 27th, 2019 will receive first consideration. We are planning to hold the first round of interviews (consisting of two separate consecutive panels) the week of March 11th, the second round of interviews (consisting of an interview panel and your 15-minute presentation prepared and presented on a planning topic or project of your choice) the week of March 25th, and make a job offer and set a work start date in April 2019.
