Building Official (Term Position)

The Town of Golden needs a Building Official as a member of our Development Services team.  This is a full time position filling in for a current leave of absence with an anticipated term of at least one year with extension potential.  Reporting to our Manager of Development Services your role is to facilitate development and help ensure our community’s built environment is safe, practical yet innovative, efficient and sustainable, and meets the expectations of our community’s direction and broad societal trends.
You have overall responsibility for administration of the town’s building and licensing related bylaws and relevant provincial and federal legislation, as well as the municipality’s current Building Bylaw, other relevant related Town bylaws, and you work closely with the Fire Chief in a related capacity.
To do this, we need you to be a good team player, communicator, and a positive influence in our organization, committed to provide enthusiastic service and support to the public.   
As a minimum we need you to be qualified for the Level 1 Building designation in accordance with the Building Act of British Columbia.  Ideally, we would like you to be certified with the Building Officials Association of British Columbia in this designation or even better.  Naturally, we are looking for you to have good computer skills, record keeping and report writing skills, experience in conflict negotiation and motivating people and a good understanding of the municipal role in this field.
This is a position designated within the CUPE Local 2309 bargaining unit with a starting wage of $33.53, adjustable pending education and experience, plus a competitive benefits package.
Golden is a resort community, an easy 3 hours’ drive west of Calgary, at the very heart of the six most highly acclaimed Canadian mountain parks, at the junction of the spectacular Kicking Horse and Columbia Rivers, and nestled between the peaks of the Purcell and Rocky Mountain ranges.  With a population of about 4,000, our staff of 35 provides a full range of municipal services. Our strong industrial base is complemented by well-established and robust tourism and service sector. 
Here you will find that the words authentic and community perfectly describe what people are discovering to be the quiet lure of a town rich in economic diversity and history, combined with an unassuming family culture of compassion, volunteerism, and a respect for community identity.  Here you will find the word adventure redefined from your first float down the world acclaimed Columbia River wetlands, to your first fall line at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

You’re going to love it here. 
Discover a place where community still matters, and a town you’ll never want to leave.
