City Manager, Sebastian, FL (population 23,432)

Tucked away on the east coast of Florida a little south of Cape Canaveral, Sebastian is an attractive waterfront community that boasts a quiet, laidback charm. The area is a paradise surrounded by natural beauty. Just across the Intracoastal Waterway lie some of Florida’s most attractive barrier islands, Sebastian Inlet State Park and Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge.

The City is looking for an achievement oriented, highly motivated leader and manager. The individual will be dynamic and seasoned with a fresh perspective. He/she will have outstanding communication skills and a “can do” attitude. The ideal candidate will keep the elected officials well informed and present them with recommendations, as well as options. The new manager will earn their trust and be a valued advisor. The individual will have opinions and not be afraid to share them. The Council is not looking for a “yes” man or woman. He/she will be visionary yet down to earth and practical—someone who is receptive to criticism with a focus on solving problems and moving on to the next issue.

The ideal candidate will have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration or Public Administration or another area related to city management. The best candidates will have eight years of experience as a City Manager or assistant and expertise in local government planning, budget, and economic development/redevelopment. Ancillary experience overseeing Airports and Golf Courses is a plus. Florida experience is preferred but not mandatory.
