City of Memphis Innovation Delivery Team
Earlier this year, the City of Memphis was selected by Bloomberg Philanthropies as one of five cities nationwide to receive an Innovation Delivery Team grant. The three-year grant represents one of the largest private-sector commitments to social innovation in our nation’s history. The grant will fund local teams, housed within the Mayor’s Office, charged with developing effective solutions to some of the city’s most pressing challenges. In Memphis, the team is charged with reducing incidences of handgun violence, particularly among juveniles, and supporting small business growth in core city neighborhoods.
Today, we are pleased to post job descriptions for seven positions on the team for which we are now hiring. Please click the links below for a more detailed job description for each:
- Project Managers (2)
- Junior Project Managers (2)
- Performance Management Lead
- Development & Communications Lead
- Team Manager
The full job descriptions contain all the information about the exact duties and responsibilities of each position, as well as the qualifications we are looking for. Suffice to say, we are looking for bold, visionary urban leaders who excited about the prospect of working in a collaborative, innovative environment to generate the new solutions that will help Memphis – and all American cities – advance and prosper.
Salaries for each position will be competitive and commensurate with experience. A full benefits package will be offered for each. Salaries and benefits will be paid from the Bloomberg Philanthropies; no City of Memphis tax-payer dollars or general funds will be used.
Please share these with your friends and colleagues! Many thanks for your help and all you do to make Memphis great.
Yours in service,
A C Wharton, Jr.
Mayor, City of Memphis
