Irving, Texas, is centrally situated between Dallas and Fort Worth and is home to more than 238,000 residents. Its thriving economy, combined with its proximity to the Dallas/Fort Worth International and Dallas Love Field airports, has made Irving a U.S. corporate powerhouse. The City is a full-service municipality that operates under a home-rule charter with a council-manager form of government consisting of the mayor and eight city council members.
The City seeks a forward-thinking leader with strong collaborative and decision-making skills to join its leadership team as Assistant City Manager. At present, the Assistant City Manager has executive oversight of Financial Services (including budget, accounting, treasury and purchasing divisions), Municipal Courts, Information Technology and Library Services. However, the portfolio of the Assistant City Manager is subject to change at the discretion of the City Manager. Accordingly, the ideal candidate must be a proven municipal leader with the ability to successfully manage virtually any city department, program, project or activity assigned by the City Manager.
The Assistant City Manager position is an exciting opportunity for a strong leader with managerial courage, political acumen and an ethical vision. The top candidate will have significant experience in local government, city revitalization and growth, and will have a Master’s degree in public administration, business administration or a related field from an accredited college or university. A minimum of 10 years of progressively responsible management experience in municipal government administration is required. Five years of experience as an Assistant City Manager or as a City Manager is preferred.
