Clarence Valley Council Full Time Permanent 14/02/2020

The Clarence Valley is a place of outstanding natural beauty and diversity, from lush rainforests to unspoilt beaches and fertile river plains. The Clarence River stretches more than 380km and is the Valley’s living link connecting the rural localities and rugged mountain ranges in the west to Grafton, onward to the hinterland villages, historic river towns of Ulmarra and Maclean and the coastal centres of Yamba and Iluka. Just three hours by road from Brisbane, with a population of 52,000 residents (and growing), a perfect climate, a bounty of rural, hinterland, coastal and city lifestyle and business options, the Clarence is fast becoming the relocation destination of choice.


Clarence Valley Council seeks to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced senior manager with a proven record of accomplishment who can provide strong leadership and change management and continue to develop the organisation in support of Council’s strategic direction. Reporting directly to the General Manager this role will require significant experience in leading change at a senior management level. You will be able to demonstrate genuine leadership qualities, strategic management skills and an ability to create a capability-based culture.
