This is an exciting opportunity for a senior manager to join the award-winning Toronto Public Service and participate in the administration of Canada’s largest city.

Deputy City Manager
As one of the top executives within the City Manager’s Office, you will oversee a cluster of several divisions and offices. Your focus will be on the effective coordination of City programs and services within the cluster to ensure both the delivery of high-quality customer service to Toronto residents and the cost-effective achievement of Council priorities within a multi-stakeholder environment. This is a far-reaching role, as you’ll be working closely with the City Manager to ensure administrative compliance with high standards of fiscal responsibility, management policies, standards, practices and procedures, public service, ethical, professional and apolitical behaviour, openness, transparency and integrity.

To be successful in this exceptional leadership role, we are seeking a proven leader from a large, complex, multiple stakeholder organization (municipal government/agency, or a mix of provincial/municipal government/agency). Foresight and vision accompanied with the ability to build trust with elected officials and a large team is of utmost importance.
