The South Australian Government is reforming how our landscapes are managed by putting community at the heart of sustainably managing the State’s soil, water, pest plants and animals and biodiversity by enacting the Landscape South Australia Act (2019). Region based Boards have been established across South Australia that will operate as Government statutory bodies, having greater autonomy and flexibility to respond to local issues and facilitate the sustainable management of landscapes in the regions outside of Adelaide in partnership with land owners, stakeholders and the community.
The Kangaroo Island Landscape Board is seeking a General Manager to manage its business, work with the community and key stakeholders and deliver its regional landscape plan including a strong focus on soil, water, pest plant and animals and biodiversity. Based on Kangaroo Island, the General Manager reports to the Chair of the Board and is accountable for managing the Board’s business efficiently and effectively.
Applications are encouraged from suitably experienced professionals displaying outstanding skills in leadership, relationship building, people and change management, stakeholder management, partnering, co-designing projects with stakeholders, strategic thinking, operational delivery, cultural competency and the ability to form strong relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and organisations. An ability to work with all levels of Government and the NGO sector is critical. Formal qualifications in a relevant discipline will be highly regarded.
This is a genuine and exciting opportunity to work closely with the Kangaroo Island community and its stakeholders to deliver a meaningful landscape plan for an internationally iconic location.
