Work. Serve. Thrive. With the City of Durham
Advance in your career while making a real difference
in the community you serve.
A strategic focus, passion for public service, collegial atmosphere and award-winning results combine to make the City of Durham a great place to work.
It starts with management. Our council-manager form of government provides stability and professional management that enhances long-term planning and results.
Next comes strategy. Our Strategic Plan and Performance Management System Dashboard guide decision-making, work and resource allocation for staff, administration and Council. That gives administrative leaders clear direction and support to move their service areas forward.
Finally, service. Our Culture of Service Initiative focuses employees on service – to self, to co-workers and to the community. It creates a collaborative workplace where staff members feel valued, co-workers help you succeed and citizen needs are met.
The result: innovative programs and services that deliver stellar customer service and quality work, as well as national and international acclaim.
