July 23, 2018- Cannabis Program is Hiring!

"Now Hiring" 

Hey all –

Want to join a dynamic, fast-paced team with ever-changing work assisting a growing and exciting industry? Well, then we have some good news! The Cannabis Program is currently hiring for a Compliance Specialist (Code Specialist II)!

The position opened today, and the last day to apply is Aug. 13, 2018.

You may note when you click on the link above that the word “cannabis” and the phrase “Cannabis Program” do not appear anywhere in the job posting. That’s because this is a recruitment to build a “list” of eligible applicants for ANY Code Specialist II positions to become vacant in the City.

However, this list will be used by the Cannabis Program to fill a vacant Code Specialist II position with the Cannabis Program!

Compliance Specialists are responsible for the following, but not limited to:

  • Inspecting cannabis applicants and licensees in the City of Portland
  • Responding to concerns or complaints from the public, the business community, or partners
  • Attending meetings to coordinate efforts to assist cannabis businesses with reaching compliance
  • Working with City, State, industry, community, and other partners regularly

If this position sounds like a good fit for you or anyone you know, please apply, and/or please share with your networks!
