City of Hamilton
City Manager


Here is a City where you can be an integral part of an amazing future and help to make it happen. With its diverse and strong economy, lakeside location, and extraordinary community spirit, the City of Hamilton is a lively and livable city that’s located in the heart of Canada’s most populous province. Driven by outstanding transportation infrastructure, world-class educational institutions and hospitals, Hamilton’s industries include advanced manufacturing, life sciences, ICT, logistics, agri-business and food processing, finance, insurance and real estate, and creative industries. As City Manager, you will join the City as it plans major projects such as Waterfront Renewal, and enhanced transit which includes a $1B provincial LRT investment.

You will work closely with the Mayor and City Council as you provide strategic leadership and guidance in the cost-effective administration of departments, programs, and services. You will establish policy and planning frameworks that incorporate input from the City’s stakeholder groups and ensure that the City has the organizational structure and practices in place to make optimum use of talent, technology, and resources. As the City Manager, you will act as a steward of the corporation’s financial commitments and revenue generation. In this key role you will be an advocate for Hamilton’s ongoing economic prosperity and lead by example as the City serves its citizens with passion while growing its reputation as a pacesetting Canadian community.

An experienced and successful senior executive, you have led large, complex, and unionized corporations that engage a wide range of stakeholders. Skilled at forging partnerships and creating a supportive environment, you have a track record of leading and inspiring others. An accomplished generalist and consensus builder, you are now ready and able to assume the number one role with a city that’s “the best place to raise a child and age successfully.”
