City Manager

City of Redding

The City of Redding is a thriving, dynamic community of over 90,000 residents located at the north end of the Sacramento Valley. The community offers an impressive complement of housing in all areas and housing types: riverfront, mountain view, country acreage and traditional subdivision. Housing is much less costly than in many other urban areas in California and the City has excellent high-performing public, private and charter schools. Redding successfully combines the ambiance of a small town with the amenities of a large city.

The new City Manager will join a city with many positive attributes and great potential, and will operate in an environment that’s both exciting and challenging. The City Manager will assist the City Council as they work collaboratively on a variety of issues affecting the City and its residents.  The Manager will be someone who leads by including others. He/she will make our staff and citizens feel they are included and invested in the important decisions of the City.

The new City Manager will have at least 10 years of progressively responsible experience and a proven track record as a city manager, assistant city manager, or senior executive for a comparable public sector organization.  A combination of training and experience that provides the required knowledge, skills and abilities is qualifying. A typical education would include a Bachelor’s degree in public/business administration or a closely related field.
