The California state Treasurer's Office is seeking an executive director for the California Secure Choice Retirement Savings Investment Board, said a job posting on the treasurer's website.

The program will offer a state-sponsored retirement savings program for about 7 million private-sector employees whose employer doesn't provide a retirement program.

The position will pay between $10,505 and $11,700 a month and will be open until filled. No deadline has been set for a person to be hired.

Minimum qualifications include knowledge of the organization and functions of California government, including the executive branch and the Legislature, the ability to plan, organize and direct the work of multidisciplinary professional and administrative staff, and analyze administrative policies, organization, procedures and practices.

The job posting is available on the treasurer's website.

Officials of the treasurer's office were not immediately available to provide additional information.

State Treasurer John Chiang is the chairman of the Secure Choice board. The program, which was signed into law Sept. 29 by California Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr., is not expected to be enrolling applicants until 2018 at the earliest.
