City of Sioux City - Utilities Superintendent
(Added 7/17/2016)

$69,872-$97,820/DOQ

The City of Sioux City is seeking to hire a highly skilled hard working individual as a Utilities Superintendent who possesses at least a Grade II (2) Water Distribution certificate (in good standing issued by Iowa DNR) with the ability to upgrade your certification to a Grade IV (4) within one year, if not sooner. We recognize that there are many very skilled water distribution operators who simply need some “time-in-grade” or qualifying experience that they cannot obtain in their current position.  For the right candidate, we can offer you an unmatched opportunity where you can gain the experience and possibly the training you need to qualify for the Iowa Grade 3 and 4 exams.  Make no mistake, a Grade 4 is required as a part of this position and we are seeking a highly certified operator, but we know that there are some very skilled Grade 2 or 3 operators who just haven’t been in a position to qualify to take a Grade 4 exam. 

If this describes you and you aren’t afraid to take on a challenge in a fast-paced environment, we encourage you to apply.  We have identified you as a potential candidate based on your level of certification.   You may have considered a positon like ours, but not looked at it seriously because of the Grade IV requirement.  If you possess an equivalent certification in another state we do need proof that IDNR will grant you reciprocity. 

If you also possess, or can obtain an IAWEA Voluntary Wastewater Collection Systems certification, that’s something we consider a bonus, as you will oversee our collection system in this role.  Frosting on the cake would be any experience or certification in Backflow testing.

Sioux City is a great place to live, work and enjoy life.  It has been twice named an All-American City by the National Civic League and was ranked first in the nation for economic development in communities with 50,000 – 200,000 people by Site Selection Magazine for the fifth time in 10 years.  It serves as the regional hub for business, employment, industry, retail trade, medical care, educational opportunities and tourism in the tri-state metropolitan area. As recently as 2014, Forbes ranked Sioux City in the Top 30 Best Places for Business and Careers. The City of Sioux City has built a reputation through its "culture of excellence" where we utilize a team approach to problem solving and public service. If you have a desire to make in impact and you love to be challenged, we have a spot for you. We are experiencing significant economic growth and we need talented people like you to help us continue to be the first-class community and regional leader that we are.

What is expected of a Utilities Superintendent? You will oversee approximately 30 people to ensure skilled mechanical maintenance and repair work involving water lines, sewer lines, storm sewer systems, pumps, water mains, and related equipment and devices is performed at a superior level. In addition to the certification requirements, we also need someone who possesses a valid State of Iowa Class A Commercial Driver’s License with tanker and combination endorsements; someone who already possesses, or will seek to obtain a Voluntary IAWEA Wastewater Collection Systems Certificate; and who will work to obtain Backflow Tester Certification. The pay range for this position has been increased and is now at $69,872-$97,820/DOQ annually and we offer an exceptional benefits package!

If you have an interest in this position and believe you have the talent and determination we are seeking, we'd love to hear from you SOON. For complete job description, qualifications and the required application, please visit: www.sioux-city.org and click on "job openings".  If you have further questions, please contact Human Resources at 712-279-6200.  Applicant disclosure must be completed and turned in with your city application.  Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, so hurry or you may miss out!  We expect to fill this positon very soon.
