Working with the City, you will be taken care of. I have personally enjoyed the care that the City as an employer has shown me. The pay is good, the work is interesting, and there are many opportunities for growth and challenge.

The City has the ability to provide work/life balance, lots of room for career development, and challenging work that touches the citizens of Edmonton. Our department offers a chance to experience a connection with your passion within a supportive, and innovative environment.

— Dana Rees, Program Manager

I think my most rewarding moments are yet to come with the City, as I'm excited about what the future may hold. However, leading up to now, I have had the opportunity to be on a couple of award-winning projects. One was for TTY, and we got the Mayor's Award for implementing a system that would allow TTY devices to connect and talk to all City departments. And just recently, a group that I was a part of put together a 'Working Alone' plan, and received an Occupational Health and Safety Award.
