Posting Date:  11/09/2018
Job Title:  Finance Director/CFO
Salary:  DOE
Entity:  Jefferson County Public Utility District
Closing Date:  Open until filled


Love accounting? Intrigued by the utility industry? Haven’t worked in the electric utility industry, but are willing and able to learn a new chart of accounts and very specific functional accounting rules? This may be the opportunity for you! Jefferson County PUD follows RUS accounting guidelines as well as those of Washington state as a government entity.

We admittedly had a few bumps in the road when we took over the electric utility in 2013. Since then, our financial consultant has helped us convert to and learn comprehensive industry accounting software, NISC, and we have successfully passed our audits for the past 3 years, the SAO saying this past audit was the easiest one yet!

The PUD seeks someone with at least 10 years of financial experience and at least 5 years of experience supervising accounting staff and leading the accounting function of an organization. Experience in an electric utility is desirable. If you don’t have electric utility experience, but are willing to learn, we can help you with that learning curve through one-on-one coaching with industry consultants and classroom and on-line learning opportunities. We are making history in Port Townsend…come be a part of it!
