City Manager
City of Flagstaff, AZ

Flagstaff is northern Arizona’s most appealing mountain community, renowned for its diversity, Native American culture, stunning scenery, and active lifestyle. Nestled at the base of the majestic San Francisco Peaks at an elevation of 6,900 feet, Flagstaff (pop. 72,000, 66 sq. mi.) is surrounded by the largest ponderosa pine forests on earth. Its picturesque snow-capped mountains, aspen groves, meadows, and prairies provide a welcome contrast from Arizona’s lower elevation desert landscapes.

The City Manager serves at the pleasure of the City Council and represents the Council’s policy directives. Flagstaff’s FY 2018-2019 budget is $280 million, supporting 1,000 FTEs.

A bachelor’s degree (public administration, business, management, or related field); extensive administrative and management experience that clearly demonstrates the candidate’s ability to lead a municipal organization; or any equivalent combination of education, experience, and training are required. A master’s degree is preferred. The initial annual salary range is $195,000 to $215,000, depending upon qualifications and experience. Comprehensive benefits. Residency within city limits required.
