Manager, Information Systems

For more than fifty years Century Group has built places that define neighbourhoods: places with walkable streets where people live, shop and work; and places connected to natural landscapes.

These are the places that, if built at a human scale, with an aim of reducing energy use, create more sustainable communities with durable value and lasting beauty. That’s Century Thinking.™

As well, you will lead the Information Services Steering Committee, manage IS project budgets, provide contract oversight and operationalize business strategies and recommendations focused on core systems and practical solutions.
