    The Department of Fish & Game works to preserve the state's natural resources and people's right to conservation of those resources, as protected by Article 97 of the Massachusetts Constitution. To carry out this mission, the Department exercises responsibility over the Commonwealth's marine and freshwater habitats that support them.

    The Division of Ecological Restoration (DER) restores and protects the Commonwealth's rivers, wetlands, and watersheds for the benefit of people and the environment. This mission is critical to the success of the Department of Fish and Game that manages, protects, and restores the natural resources of the Commonwealth. DER works with community-based partners to restore aquatic ecosystems. The Division's ecological restoration work brings clean water, recreation opportunities, and other ecosystem services to the citizens of Massachusetts.

    The Department of Fish and Game's Division of Ecological Restoration is accepting resumes and applications for the position of Division Finance Manager (Fiscal Officer IV).

    A cover letter and resume must be submitted as part of the application process and attached "as relevant" to the requisition.  

    The Finance Manager provides supervision, oversight, and guidance for the Division of Ecological Restoration's (DER's) fiscal activities within the Department of Fish and Game (DFG), including operational, capital, and grant budgeting and management; procurement; DER's Priority Project Program; and overall management and supervision of the Division's fiscal team.  The Finance Manager, under the fiscal oversight of the CFO for the DFG,  reports to the DER Assistant Director and works in close collaboration with the DER Director, DER Deputy Director, and DER Assistant Director to align DER's financial activities to support its mission, programs, and activities and to comply with state requirements and Department priorities.

    The complexity and interdisciplinary nature of DER's work requires strong fiscal management, and the Finance Manager brings this organizational leadership to the Division team.  DER staff typically coordinates over 50 active, on-the-ground restoration projects and other activities in partnership with many public and private organizations.  With an annual budget of over $10 million, DER executes over 150 engineering, technical, and grant contracts each year involving complex environmental, technical, regulatory, policy, and public safety challenges.  The Finance Manager works in tandem with the DFG Finance Office and oversees the fiscal systems and processes that support this work.
