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 a Principal Civil Engineer with the VenturaWaterPure Program. Come join our team as we align our workforce to better serve our community together - they're counting on us. We are accepting applications for the position of Principal Civil Engineer . The Principal Civil Engineer is part of the VenturaWaterPure program and will be a vital part of the team to ensure program success. The position will work under general direction of the VenturaWaterPure Program Director and will perform difficult and responsible administrative, technical, and civil engineering work related to the management and supervision of the design and delivery of the VenturaWaterPure project. The Principal Civil Engineer will provide project management assistance during the design and construction phases for the projects associated with the VenturaWaterPure Program, which will augment the local water supply through the indirect and potentially direct potable reuse. Infrastructure projects would include but are not limited to: An Advanced Water Purification Facility (AWPF) including use of Ozone, Biological Activated Carbon Filtration, Ultrafiltration, Reverse Osmosis, Ultra Violet Disinfection and Advanced Oxidation processes; Pipelines to support effluent flows between the Ventura Water Reclamation Facility (VWRF), AWPF, and groundwater injection facilities; Groundwater injection and extraction facilities; Ocean outfall for disposal of RO concentrate; and, upgrades at the VWRF. The Ideal Candidate : Demonstrates a strong background in project management. Has performed advanced technical civil engineering work. Experience working with water/wastewater related engineering projects desirable. Utilizes a team approach to problem solving. Understands the techniques of managing, scheduling, and monitoring multiple projects simultaneously to ensure timely completion within budget. Has a proven track record of project management experience that demonstrates ability to identify and resolve project issues. Possesses excellent oral and written communication skills. This position is designated as "at-will", serving at the pleasure of the appointing authority, and subject to discharge without cause and right of appeal. VenturaWaterPure Ventura is one of biggest cities in California to rely solely on local water supplies. Rainfall feeds Ventura River, Lake Casitas and groundwater basins to meet all community needs. But prolonged drought and regulations have reduced the local water supply. Without additional supply, Ventura's water needs will outpace its supply by 20% to 30% as early as 2035. After a decade of study and analysis, the City proposes two solutions: VenturaWaterPure and the State Water Interconnection Project. Combined, the projects would diversify Ventura's water supply; secure a new, locally owned water source; meet regulatory requirements; improve water quality; and meet future water supply needs. The proposed VenturaWaterPure Project would divert, treat and re-use water that is currently discharged into the Santa Clara River Estuary. A new advanced water treatment facility would treat water to its purist form, creating a new, locally owned supply that is not dependent on rainfall. The main feature of VenturaWaterPure would be a new advanced water purification facility. Like other active potable reuse projects throughout California and the nation, it will utilize a proven multi-stage treatment process to produce a reliable, high-quality, and local water resource that is independent from rainfall or outside agreements. Other components of the project include a network of pipelines, a groundwater injection/extraction system, a concentrate discharge facility, and freshwater treatment wetlands.

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.
