The City of Hillsboro is committed to creating and supporting an inclusive and welcoming environment for all employees to thrive. We value, respect, and empower employees as unique individuals with authentic voices and diverse ideas.

Join our team to manage the Pacific Northwest’s new premiere community center!

The Community Center at 53rd Avenue Park (CC53) is currently under construction and will open in Fall of 2020.  This highly anticipated facility will be an inclusive space providing access to programs that serve the wellness, cultural, social, and enrichment needs for Hillsboro in a safe and welcoming environment for all.

CC53 is located on the west side of 53rd Avenue, across the street from the existing community park and sports fields.  The two story facility will feature a beautiful community event space, two court gymnasium, a large cardio weight room, exercise rooms, classrooms, and more.  All of these amenities are surrounded by twenty acres of green space and a stunning forest. To say the least, it is an extraordinary campus.

This position also requires direct communication, flexibility, tact, problem-solving, strong social skills, excellent safety judgment and commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
