Above all, this is a unique opportunity to help develop an entire community’s sustainable future from the foundation up.
What you bring:
- A relevant combination of experience and education, preferably in Public Administration or a related discipline; and at least five years progressive experience working in a municipal setting.
- A high degree of professionalism; and direct experience working with the general public, community groups, all levels of government, and First Nations partners.
