Pinellas County is seeking a dynamic and collaborative leader to provide program management and strategic leadership to guide the investment of the County’s direct allocation of the American Rescue Plan Act’s (ARPA) Local Fiscal Recovery Funds ($189M). This individual will also help support navigating the County, other local governments, and the community in leveraging all funding opportunities associated with ARPA. This role requires significant independence, strong public speaking and presentation skills, and the ability to lead a diverse group of stakeholders without having direct authority over those stakeholders. Primary duties include facilitating engagement, cooperation, and decision making with diverse internal and external stakeholders regarding American Rescue Plan Act strategy and acting as a County liaison representative with state, federal, and local agencies or organizations, coordinating a broad range of programs, projects, and services.
The position will supervise a financial manager primarily responsible for reporting, analysis, and compliance with ARPA guidelines and may manage one or more contracts related to the uses of ARPA funds.
The County is actively working to define guiding principles that will serve as a framework for defining the investment plan for the County’s direct allocation of ARPA funds.
The County is seeking to fill this position immediately. Based on ARPA deadline for expending funds, the position will be needed through calendar year 2024, at minimum. While the position is not permanent as it will be funded by ARPA, Pinellas County is committed to retaining talent and looks forward to planning in advance to ensure the individual has an engaging opportunity to continue contributing in another role as a County employee.
