General Manager

Strathfield Council Full Time Permanent 9/05/2022

Lead a culturally diverse and socially cohesive community

The Strathfield Local Government Area located in Sydney’s Inner West, is about 10 kilometres from the city centre and half way between Parramatta and the city, and the current population of 46,000 residents will expand in number to over 80,000 by 2036.

This is a magnificent urban oasis, with attractive residential communities known for their historic and heritage homes complemented by modern architecture set within established gardens, and blessed with well respected private and public schools and educational establishments.

The Council employs a talented staff group of over 200, and oversees an annual revenue budget of $91 million and a capital expenditure of $19 million. It provides service excellence to a diverse, articulate and informed community where 64% speak a language other than English at home.

The Council has a strong commitment to balancing the growth of the region with a sustainable future. The General Manager (CEO) works in close partnership with the Mayor and Councillors and leads a highly professional executive team who have a passion for service excellence.

This is an outstanding opportunity for an up and coming but proven leader with a track record of high performance, a well developed strategic focus who can see and deliver the future we desire, and a demonstrated ability to build relationships based on mutual respect.
