The District Council of Elliston is located on the western coast of the Eyre Peninsula and is known for its spectacular and dramatic coastline and as a great place for fishing, swimming, surfing and bush walking. The District’s greatest source of potential growth is from an already established tourism industry focussed on the coastal townships of Elliston, Port Kenny and Venus Bay, along with other significant recreational locations including Sheringa Beach, Locks Well, Talia Beach, Walkers Rock and Mount Camel Beach. The Council area also takes in the significant Central Eyre Peninsula grain bowl and agriculture production area centred around Lock and districts.
Reporting directly to Council, key result areas include:
- leadership, strategic planning and communication;
- human resource management;
- financial, fiscal and asset management;
- operations management and major projects;
- community engagement, stakeholder management and customer service;
- advice to and relationship with Council.
Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified and proven senior managers with experience in a diverse service based organisation. High levels of commercial acumen, complemented by authenticity, superior communication, negotiation, stakeholder management and leadership capacity are all essential qualities sought, as is the warmth, empathy and good humour necessary to bring people along with you. Most important is strength in the ability to work with people through listening and discussion to fully understand and appreciate the opportunities and challenges facing the region. Direct experience in local government will be well regarded but is not essential.
