Job Description

The Position

The Assistant County Administrator reports to the County Administrator and provides oversight of a portfolio of assigned departments, major projects, and interdepartmental initiatives. In addition, the Assistant County Administrator works closely with the Board of Supervisors, community and business leaders, and other state and local governmental officials. This position is vacant due to the previous Assistant County Administrator becoming the Chief Financial Officer. The position is one of four Assistant County Administrators in the office, each of which has operational supervision of departments and functions with the County government. Current portfolios of departmental and functional oversight for the Assistant County Administrators may change.

Loudoun County’s proposed FY2023 operating budget totals $2.5 billion, including $1.5 billion for Loudoun County Public Schools, $793.6 million for general (County) government operations, and $9.7 million for the Comprehensive Services Act for At-Risk Youth and Families (CSA). The County Administration department has 62.6 FTEs in four divisions: Executive Management, which oversees day-to-day operations in the functional areas of Community Development, Community Services, Public Safety, and Financial/Internal Operations; Support to the Board, which provides administrative and research support to the Board including its strategic goals and work plan and legislative agenda; Public Affairs and Communication, which includes external and internal communications and community engagement; and Emergency Management, which is charged with the County’s response to man-made and natural disasters, safety, and security, as well as special event planning.


Minimum requirements include any combination of education and experience equivalent to a master’s degree in Business or Public Administration or a closely related field with seven (7) years of progressively responsible experience, including two (2) years in a management role.

Preferred qualifications include a high level of responsibility in a senior-level position with supervisory oversight, service as a department head, working in a fast-paced, high-demand local government environment, and multicultural, growing communities.
