The Financial Director II will supervise at least one fulltime and one part-time employee of the AGO business office and will report to the Chief Assistant Attorney General. The position may perform other duties as assigned by the Chief Assistant Attorney General, including financial work related to human resources functions of the AGO, establishment of business processes for a variety of functions, and other work related to effective administration of the AGO.

The successful candidate must be able to recognize and implement best practices for business office operation and internal controls for the benefit of the AGO.  In addition, the successful candidate must be able to effectively advise the AGO Senior Management (Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General, and Chief Assistant Attorney General) and work collaboratively with AGO managers, Assistant Attorneys General, IT professionals and others.
