City Manager – City of Edmonton – Edmonton, AB

Edmonton is unlike any other city in Canada. Today, it sits at the heart of the most dynamic region in Canada, outranking all other cities last year in population growth, economic growth and the young age of its population. At the same time, it is also a place full of risk-takers, people with ideas who thrive in a curiously cooperative city. Edmonton may be one of North America’s most underestimated cities, but it is in the midst of a rapid and dramatic transformation.

As a national hub for post-secondary education, medical health, arts and culture, Edmonton is an economic engine of the country – fueled by a spirit of creativity, entrepreneurialism and working together to achieve great things.

The City’s strategic plan, The Way Ahead, is the bold vision to help further enable Edmonton’s ambition. City Council requires an administrative leader to deliver on this plan.

As City Manager, you will bring The Way Ahead alive by working with Council, 12,000 employees, and a city full of enthusiastic Edmontonians. You will challenge perceptions about our city and share your global perspective on city building in the 21st Century. You will build an inspiring and engaging workplace culture to address big city issues and deliver services that optimize the use of talent, technology, and finances. You will foster intergovernmental partnerships and champion the development of a global economic hub and the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.

You are an emerging or established leader who has excelled at leading a multi-faceted public or private sector organization and are recognized for getting things done. With financial acumen and project management skills, you are a community-minded relationship builder and a consummate communicator who can advance an effective culture through accountability and ingenuity.
