Claremont NH - City Manager

Deadline: February 28, 2022

Claremont, NH (approx. 13,000 pop.), is seeking an innovative, proactive, community leader to serve as its next City Manager. Located in the Lake Sunapee Region and Upper Connecticut River Valley just across the shores of the Connecticut River from Vermont, the Sugar River flows through the middle of this historic community. Claremont, with all the offerings of a much larger city, values and has retained its quintessential New England charm. With Vermont just across the river, Claremont is a short drive from the medical and educational assets of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Dartmouth College. The State capital is less than 60 miles away.

Respecting its heritage of textile and machining, through adaptive re-use, Claremont is transforming its historic downtown into a thriving residential and commercial center. Served by an Amtrak station providing direct service all the way to DC, and in close proximity to interstates 91 and 89, maintaining the momentum of the right mix of economic development will be a priority for the new Manager.

With a Mayor/Council/City Manager form of government, the City Manager oversees an operating budget of nearly $18 million and 145 full-time employees. Master’s degree in public administration or related field preferred, and seven or more years of municipal government experience in progressively responsible management and administrative capacities, or an equivalent combination of education and relevant management experience. Compensation range to $155,000; Starting salary commensurate with qualifications and experience. Residency is currently required by City Charter. Claremont is an equal opportunity employer.
