Build our city while building on your career!

We’re in market for talent, we want to see you succeed, and we want to build to a role around your strengths and expertise.

If you are a qualified and skilled engineering professional with proven demonstrated experience within a senior leadership role, then this could be the opportunity for you.

Our goal is to deliver the best possible outcomes for our community. We seek to do this by being innovative and flexible in our approach so we can attract an exceptional new member of our Executive Team.

Depending on your engineering expertise and what you bring to the role, we will partner with you to build a portfolio which could see you responsible for areas such as, but not limited to, engineering, design, project management, asset management and/or operations.

Let’s have a conversation if you:

  • Hold tertiary qualifications in Engineering or equivalent technical qualifications.
  • Have a minimum of five years’ demonstrated experience within a senior leadership role;
  • Are an inspiring and accountable leader that consistently drives high performance and a strong customer service culture;
  • Have proven change management experience including practical experience reviewing current processes and providing recommendations based on professional expertise and best practice methodologies;
  • Have the ability to work collaboratively with others and build and maintain positive relationships with internal and external stakeholders; and
  • Have highly developed budget and project management skills.

If you would like to work for an organisation where you can pave your own career path, bring your energy and diverse thinking to key projects and operations, and be a voice within Council’s Executive Management Team, then we would love to hear from you!
