City of Ventura

Welcome to the beautiful City of Ventura -- a California coastal community considered one of America's most desirable places to live.  The combination of its phenomenal climate, friendly people and spectacular coastline make Ventura a locale for those who appreciate and enjoy the outdoors.

Ventura, officially named San Buenaventura, was founded in 1782 when Saint Junipero Serra established Mission San Buenaventura, the ninth of the California missions. Serra named the mission after the Italian Saint Bonaventure, hence the nickname that Ventura is the “city of good fortune.” Located along the Pacific Ocean between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, the City was incorporated in 1866.

Ventura has a rich history of people who have lived in the area for at least 10,000 years.  Influences of the Chumash as well as Spaniards, Europeans, Chinese and early voyagers remain a significant part of the City's diverse art, architecture and cultural heritage.

Today, the City of Ventura is a full-service municipality serving 109,000 residents within the 32 square mile city limits.  Nearly 650 staff members focus on delivering key services to our businesses, residents and visitors to ensure Ventura remains a fiscally stable, economically vibrant, safe, clean and desirable community.

Description The City of Ventura is hiring! We have an immediate vacancy for the position of Construction Inspector/Senior Construction Inspector . Come join our team as we align our workforce to better serve our community together - they're counting on us. The Construction Inspector/Senior Construction Inspector is part of the Public Works Department and is responsible for inspecting the quality of work and materials used in a variety of public works construction projects consisting of a combination of both Capital Improvement Projects (City projects) and private development projects. The Construction Inspector/Senior Construction Inspector ensures conformance with plans, specifications, city standard details and departmental regulations. The ideal candidate is self-driven and organized, with excellent customer service and public relation skills. This person will have public works construction inspection experience or similar experience working for a private company. The selected person will work effectively with a variety of people, including the public, contractors, and other City staff. The ideal candidate will demonstrate outstanding verbal and oral communications skills and be able to maintain a calm composure while responding to people who may be upset, irate or frustrated with a given situation. This flexibly staffed position may be filled at either the Inspector or Senior Inspector level depending on the qualifications of the applicant and the staffing needs of the City. DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS Construction Inspector is the entry level class in the construction inspection series. Under close supervision, this class performs the more routine inspection work. Typically, incumbents will have demonstrated general competency and knowledge in the public works construction trades and will have some inspection experience. Positions in this series are flexibly staffed and incumbents are expected to advance to the Senior level upon gaining the required knowledge, abilities, and experience. Senior Construction Inspector is the journey level class in the construction inspection series. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the lower class of Construction Inspector, or, when filled from the outside, require prior construction inspection experience. Appointment to the higher class requires that the employee be performing substantially the full range of duties for the class and meet the qualification standards for the class. A Senior Construction Inspector works under general supervision and is expected to perform the entire range of field inspection work requiring a complete knowledge of construction inspection principles and practices. Work in this class is distinguished from that of the Construction Inspector by the greater complexity of the assignments received and by the greater independence with which an incumbent is expected to operate.
