City of Salisbury

The City of Salisbury is widely regarded as a progressive and leading local government entity encompassing an area of 158km2, with 144,000 people and a growing economy.  A focused and contemporary organisation, Salisbury provides a wide offering of services to a culturally diverse community whilst delivering commercially oriented functions and actively growing the economic capacity of the City.

Reporting to the GM Business Excellence, this important role will lead the development and delivery of contemporary strategic and operational HR services.  The successful candidate will also work closely with the Business Transformation Team delivering key transformational projects across the business.  Other aspects of the role include:

  • leading, motivating, developing and managing established and specialised HR teams;
  • overseeing the full suite of human resource functions including attraction, recruitment, retention, development, workforce planning, WHS, payroll and industrial relations;
  • championing and enhancing a constructive culture focussed on customer and community outcomes;  
  • identifying, scoping and pragmatically delivering contemporary people and culture initiatives.

Applications are encouraged from suitably qualified and experienced human resources professionals.  Experience in local government is not a prerequisite.  More important is success in a generalist HR role in a comparably diverse and complex organisation.  The ideal candidate will demonstrate commercial acumen, strong strategic thinking, understanding of business models and change management and high level interpersonal skills as well as personal and professional maturity and credibility.

Offered as an initial 5 year contract, this is a unique opportunity to make a genuine and valuable contribution to the community experience of the northern Adelaide region by further enhancing the people and culture function of Council.
