Just one hour from Adelaide, the Coorong District Council comprises 8,836 square kilometres of mainly rural land serviced by the towns of Meningie, Tailem Bend, Tintinara, Coonalpyn and other smaller settlements. The District’s beautiful natural environment supports diverse industries including farming, tourism and a world class motorsport facility and offers an opportunity to balance work and lifestyle. An exciting opportunity has emerged for a suitably experienced executive to lead the Council into its next phase of development.
Reporting directly to Council, the responsibilities of this pivotal role will be:
- driving the vision of the organisation and implementing the decisions of Council;
- providing high level policy advice to Council;
- strategic, business and corporate planning;
- providing leadership, direction and motivation to staff;
- promoting the affairs of Council and fostering pride in the District.
The successful candidate will have a proven record in executive management employing communication and negotiation skills, strategic planning experience and strong governance and financial capabilities.
Council seeks an appropriately qualified professional with high energy, initiative, warmth, good humour and exceptional communication, negotiation and interpersonal skills along with a strong sense of social equity who can bring out the best in staff and interact effectively with the Council, government agencies, private business and community organisations. Local government experience will be very well regarded but is not essential.
These are exciting times at the south eastern end of the Freeway and beyond to the iconic Coorong. Make an enquiry to explore bringing your capabilities to the entity governing a bright future.
