Boasting a rich history and strong sense of community just beyond the reaches of Dallas-Fort Worth’s hustle and bustle, the City of Justin is everything a hometown should be. Friendly, quiet, safe; there are no strangers here, with a mere 5,400 residents scattered across 4.4 square miles of Denton County. While growth is on its way, Justin’s residents hope to hold tight to the amenities and sense of place that made their home what it is today.

The City of Justin is seeking a bold, visionary servant leader ready to take the helm of a fast-growth town eager to retain its quality of life and sense of community. Candidates should have broad experience in city management and knowledge of municipal budget preparation and maintenance, program development and administration, applicable state and federal laws and regulations, and performance management. They should also be skilled in working with elected and appointed officials, guiding conversations, building consensus, and challenging leaders to think strategically and innovatively.

The Justin community is best served by an involved and engaged City Manager, someone approachable who understands how to go the extra mile in resolving resident concerns and complaints. Candidates should have strong communication, negotiating, and interpersonal skills, experience building bridges between a City and its residents and business community, and a proactive approach to managing issues through thoughtful planning. The ideal candidate is searching for a long-term post, ready to provide stability to City staff and make their mark on the community as it grows and develops.

This position requires a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with major coursework in public administration, business administration, or a closely related field, with a master’s degree preferred. Candidates should have a minimum of five to seven years of increasingly responsible experience in local government or a related field. Experience as a city manager, assistant city manager, or high-level department head for a similarly sized or larger community would be particularly valuable.

The City of Justin is offering a starting salary range of $160,000 to $190,000 for this position based on qualifications and experience.
