Detailed Description : PDF

Building on recent progress, the City of San Bruno is ready for even more success. Just ten miles south of San Francisco and adjacent to the San Francisco International Airport, San Bruno sits at the center of three major freeways, the historic El Camino Real, two regional commuter rail lines (BART and Caltrain) and regional bus and express bus service - creating many exciting opportunities for transit-oriented mixed-use and residential redevelopment along transit corridors. San Bruno, known as the “City with a Heart,” is primarily a residential community, rich in ethnic diversity. With a population of 43,000, San Bruno is home to the world headquarters of YouTube and and boasts a diverse and up-and-coming downtown retail core. Located directly adjacent to the City of South San Francisco and its world-renowned Life Science industry, San Bruno is now attracting Life Science lab and research development along with interest from top residential developers for all types of housing at all affordability levels. San Bruno is a very diverse community which maintains a small-town charm while embracing the future and the need for economic growth and smart development, which is needed in order to strengthen city finances and create new revenue for city services, infrastructure, and community benefits. The City recently established its first district map and held its first district elections for City Council in November 2022. In this election, voters also enacted term limits limiting councilmembers and the Mayor to 12 consecutive years of service.

The City Manager serves as the Chief Executive Officer of San Bruno. As such, the City Manager is responsible for the appointment and supervision of all City department heads other than the Public Works Director and Community Economic Development Director who report to the Assistant City Manager. The City Manager is also responsible for oversight of approximately 260 full-time employees and all City operations to ensure delivery of high-quality City services. The City is seeking a solution oriented, strategic, and proactive candidate to serve as the next City Manager. The ideal candidate must be committed to quality services and programs, and must be responsive to the diverse community while encouraging greater community partnerships and engagement. The successful candidate will possess excellent interpersonal skills, emotional intelligence, and the political astuteness necessary to build and maintain relationships with Council, external partners, and the community. A collaborative, innovative, and adaptable candidate will be successful.

The annual salary range for the City Manager is $275,141 to $385,000; placement within this range is dependent on qualifications and experience.
