The Montgomery County Department of Parks seeks a well-rounded and experienced design/construction professional to be a Project Quality Management Specialist in its Park Development Division.

The Park Development Division is responsible for the implementation of the Department's $220 million CIP, a six-year plan for the acquisition, design, construction, and renovation of the more than 400 parks on more than 37,000 acres of parkland within Montgomery County, Maryland.  CIP projects vary from renovating playgrounds, trails, ballfields, courts, historical structures, park activity buildings, nature centers, and maintenance facilities, replacing culverts and bridges, restoring streams, to renovating whole parks and developing new parks.
