Job Description

Located just 40 minutes from the Brisbane CBD, Ipswich is Queensland's oldest provincial city, and blends a rich heritage with the energy of being the hub of today's growth region in South East Queensland. Ipswich City Council is in a region which is a catalyst for growth and change in SEQ. With its population set to grow to over 520 000 by 2041, new jobs and quality lifestyle are key drivers for Ipswich's rapid expansion. Ipswich City Council currently employs more than 1200 people. Council teams are spread across a range of industries delivering a wide range of services to the community.
With a CEO determined to restore trust between the organisation and the community it serves, the sense of legacy that this role can achieve is almost limitless. You will report directly to the CEO and sit on the Executive leadership team with a remit to oversee the critical areas of ICT, Finance, procurement, Legal and Corporate Governance and People and Culture. As the organisation undergoes meaningful transformation, this position will be expected to provide visionary leadership that engages with the teams that report into it. This position will be expected to deliver against the key deliverables of the recently completed whole of Council transformation strategy and the overall raising of the workplace performance. In addition, this role will be expected to frequently keep the Council apprised on the overall organisational performance.

You will be a senior Executive with a demonstrated track record of performance improvement in large and complex organisations (not necessarily Local Government).  Your leadership style has seen you engage with your teams but you also do not compromise on performance or behaviour in your drive to leave a legacy of a high performing and inclusive team. You will have relevant business focused graduate and post graduate qualifications as well as the ability to take a holistic view of the internal and external influence of Council. You will be compensated with an attractive salary package including flexibility around salary sacrifice and a suite of other benefits.
