Director of Human Resources 

About the City

Goose Creek, the municipality that Business Week called the best place to raise a family in South Carolina, is located minutes from the international tourist destination of Charleston, and the pristine beaches of coastal South Carolina. It is situated perfectly between the state's Boeing plant to its south, and Volvo's automotive plant to its north, both of which have turned the region into a hotbed of industrial growth.

The city's own business community is thriving, a result of a business-friendly, can-do attitude.

And yet Goose Creek is more than a growing population. Through wise and progressive leadership, the city has achieved that delicate balance between growth and the preservation of its small-town character. Residents live, work, and raise their families here, surrounded by the natural treasure that is South Carolina's Lowcountry.


Mission

The City's mission is to provide core municipal services at the highest level of customer satisfaction at a reasonable cost to citizens, businesses and visitors.

Vision

Goose Creek is a thriving and active city with a hometown atmosphere. The City is the best place in the region to raise a family and for businesses to be successful. City government has engaged its citizens and is innovative, transparent, and a leader in the region.

Staff

The City of Goose Creek currently employs approximately 400 staff members across 9 departments.
