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.
