COMMERCIAL MANAGER - WASTEWATER

Mount Barker District Council

Situated just 25 minutes from the Adelaide CBD, the Mount Barker District Council services a diverse and progressive community with a population of over 30,000.  Projected to reach 60,000 over the next 25 years, it is one of Australia’s fastest growing areas.  The picturesque region continues to experience unprecedented residential, commercial and industrial growth, while offering outstanding lifestyle and business opportunities.

With the Council poised to make significant investment into wastewater capital projects over the next 5 years transforming their current wastewater assets and infrastructure to accommodate the region’s continued growth, there now exists a unique opportunity for an appropriately qualified individual to join the Council and help lead this transformation.

Accountable to the General Manager Infrastructure, this unique role will operate with significant autonomy and will be broadly responsible for three key functional areas:

  • business development, strategic marketing and stakeholder communications and management;
  • the day to day operations and management of the wastewater assets and wastewater business;
  • infrastructure and capital project delivery for wastewater assets.

In addition to these three broad functions, this role will be responsible for leading and galvanising the existing experienced team of engineers and operators to ensure optimum performance of the Council’s wastewater system and assets.

This position will suit an effective and decisive leader with proven commercial acumen, highly developed stakeholder engagement skills and a strong focus on the benefit this role will bring to the community.  Applications are encouraged from candidates outside of Local Government, with experience in the water industry being highly regarded but not essential.

The importance of this role cannot be understated, as Mount Barker District Council is South Australia’s second largest water authority.  The role will require a candidate who is eager to contribute to this progressive and rapidly growing community which boasts major regional influence and is considered a local employer of choice.

Track Record

Since 1993, Hender Consulting has been providing executive search, recruitment and associated services with an unwavering client focus and complete commitment to quality, integrity, authenticity, confidentiality, objectivity, responsiveness, independence and trusted advice. 

The firm now handles clearly more senior executive appointments than any other South Australian business and is widely regarded as the leading provider of executive search and selection in SA. This is underpinned by a significant portfolio of senior appointments. 

For the last decade or more, Hender Consulting has, on average, appointed a CEO or equivalent role every 24 days and two General Manager (C Suite) or Manager roles every week. Please click on the PDFs below for a list of past appointments we have facilitated. 

CEO or equivalent appointments 

General Manager (C Suite) and Manager appointments

Importantly, and as evidence of the satisfaction with the Hender service, virtually 100% of our work is repeat business, via referral or generated by selective tenders. 

We are also regularly re-engaged to recruit for executive positions years later after a successful appointee retires or moves on to a new opportunity. 

Services

Since 1993, Hender Consulting has been providing six core professional services within the human resources domain.

Executive Search

We are regularly engaged to search for key executives and managers locally, nationally and internationally. We invite you to review our Track Record and an extensive list of significant executive searches. 

Advertised Executive Recruitment 

The firm utilises a wide range of high profile print and online advertising mechanisms to attract a competitive field of applicants for key executive and management positions across South Australia. We invite you to review our Track Record for an extensive list of executive appointments. 

Remuneration Benchmarking and Advice 

Many of our clients engage us to provide independent remuneration advice in regard to executive, management and technically specialised positions. Due to our extensive and consistent recruitment activity across most industries, we are able to keep a constant finger on the pulse of remuneration trends in the South Australian marketplace. 

Independent Executive Performance Reviews

At Hender Consulting, we take an ethical approach to recruitment and associated services for our client – the employer.

We are also not providers of industrial relations legal advice but can refer you to appropriate professionals from our extensive and trusted networks. 

Our People

At Hender Consulting, our consultants and support professionals are carefully chosen based on experience, professionalism, authenticity, integrity, judgement and unwavering client focus. The firm has a remarkable and uncommon record securing and retaining some of the most experienced professionals in the industry and beyond.

  • Significant intellectual property regarding executive candidate calibre
  • Understanding of the key industries and demographics affecting the SA economy and labour market
  • Knowledge of current remuneration trends across disciplines and industry settings
  • Experience navigating the complexities, sensitivities, risks and communication strategy required during important executive appointments
