Learn What Our Business Professionals Have to Say

What can you expect from a career as a business professional at the City of Edmonton? We think this is best answered by the business professionals you would be working with.

I chose to work here because of the work/life balance and strong leadership in my department. The City of Edmonton's culture is collaborative, engaging, and supportive. It is continually striving to be a better place to work.

Some qualities that describe the City as an employer would be secure, inclusive and team-oriented. Transportation, and especially DATS, is very team-oriented, and has to work cohesively in order to provide quality service to our customers. One phrase I would choose to describe the culture or philosophy here would be 'commitment to excellence.'

What I find most rewarding is being able to educate hiring managers on how to hire the best people into their positions. By ensuring the best people are hired, we are ensuring the right talent is working on key initiatives to make our City better. I also find it very rewarding to help our staff solve problems and deal with difficult issues. It's nice to know you are relied upon for support and guidance.
