City Manager – City of Bozeman, MT

Annual salary range: $158,000 to $183,000
Application deadline: Open until filled.
First resume review: Monday, February 24, 2020

Beautifully situated on the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains, scenic Bozeman covers over 18 square miles and is the county seat of Gallatin County, one of the most populated and fastest growing areas in the region. The City comprises the majority of the Bozeman Micropolitan Statistical area and is home to almost 50,000 residents.

The City is seeking a proven leader who has experience with rapidly growing communities and the challenges that they face. An understanding of the Intermountain West and associated issues concerning the environment, housing, etc. is desirable. The ideal candidate should be decisive, unflappable, and lead with a high degree of confidence (always championing empathy, civility, and ethics).

The next City Manager will enjoy working with a highly qualified staff that looks forward to supporting their next leader. Building cross-functional teams, maintaining a calm level of control through conflict, and delegating to manage workload are all essential skills. The city organization works hard and at a rapid pace, but there’s also a great quality of life to be enjoyed outside of the office. Someone who is open, friendly, and approachable will find success working in this engaged community and a dynamic person who embraces the local culture would be an excellent fit. Finally, capital project experience is needed as the City commences construction on a $40M public safety center.

To be considered, please submit a detailed resume, cover letter, and a list of six work-related references (who will not be contacted until the late stages of the recruitment and only with prior authorization). Your resume should reflect both years and months with regard to the employment dates for current and prior positions held. Please submit your materials through the CPS HR website at:
