The City of Tampa, FL seeks a passionate and experienced environmental professional to fill the newly-created position of Sustainability and Resiliency Officer.

The Mayor is looking for someone fluent in all subject matter relevant to sustainability and resiliency policy at the municipal level. Previous experience in a large organization is preferable, though demonstrable success at any level of government or successful implementation of sustainability programs in a corporate or nonprofit environment will also be considered.

The City is also looking to improve its internal sustainability, and therefore seeks a strong project management professional with proven experience in implementing change across an entire organization. The City desires someone with a strong technical background, though it isn’t a prerequisite for the position. The ideal candidate will be able to clearly communicate the causes of climate change, corrective policy options that may help remediate climate threats to the City, and recommended alternatives with elected officials, agency peers, and members of the public.
