Operations Manager

Central Darling Shire Council Full Time Permanent 3/03/2023

Central Darling Shire is the largest Shire in NSW and yet has the smallest population. It covers an area about the size of the main island of Tasmania and yet has a population of less than 2,000 people. The Shire is extremely diverse with four main communities (Wilcannia, Menindee, Ivanhoe and White Cliffs) and Council is committed to delivering customer focused services and support to the Shire. If you love building infrastructure and seeing results for your efforts in a great team environment, then you are who we are looking for.

  •          We are supportive of candidates looking for sponsorship opportunities in Australia

  •          A great opportunity to work in Regional NSW

  •          Substantially increased remuneration package on offer (including accommodation and vehicle)

  •          Flexible approach to hours worked so that a compressed week can lead to a better work life balance

  •          Package range from $140,000 to $170,000

You will provide leadership and direction in the management and delivery of Council’s Asset Management, Roads & Drainage, Water & Sewer and maintenance programs. You will also be responsible for management of our four Depots and you will be a key member of the Management Executive team.


This position is based in Wilcannia and to attract a high calibre person, Council is offering a very attractive remuneration package, subsidised housing, a motor vehicle and a great lifestyle. Council welcomes overseas applicants seeking sponsorship. The cost of sponsorship by Council will reduce the package payable by that amount.
