Chief Officer Corporate And Strategy

Careers at Council - Australia,

Any Industry
Source: uWorkin


Armidale Regional Council (ARC) has experienced a sustained period of instability which has created a significant range of issues the organisation now needs to work through. The recent appointment of a new General Manager has afforded ARC the opportunity to create a high performing, engaged and aligned organisational culture at which Councillors and staff will be the centerpiece.

Recruitment of a Chief Officer – Corporate and Strategy represents the first step towards establishing a unified Executive Leadership Team (ELT) to ensure we ‘restore and then thrive’ as an organisation.

This pivotal executive leadership position in the organisation structure reporting directly to the General Manager will lead the corporate and strategic functions of the business currently made up of Finance, Governance, Information Technology, Strategic Asset Management, Customer Service, Corporate Planning, Marketing and Communications, Community Services, Libraries, Airport, Pre-school and Economic Development.

Pivotal to the task will be the need to work closely with the General Manager to create the conditions for alignment between the Councillors, the Executive of Council, the staffing group, external stakeholders, and the community.

This role requires a high level of experience in change management with a commitment to values and behaviours based leadership. You will have patience, great listening skills, be an adept communicator, be committed to building leadership capability and organisational capacity, along with driving cultural alignment. You will also have a very strong financial background with a degree in Business and/or Accounting, with a CA/CPA highly regarded. Your demonstrated experience and success in managing the corporate services function in a complex and multifaceted organisation is essential for the role.

The pathway ahead for ARC will not be an easy one; however, the position offers enormous career opportunities and the prospect of working as part of newly established, high performing leadership team. If you are up for the change journey, enjoy leading by example and mentoring and can offer the organisation stability, then this is most certainly the role for you.

In return we will offer you all the natural beauty and attractions Armidale and region has to offer. We will also offer you a senior executive, five-year performance-based contract with an attractive remuneration package inclusive of a motor vehicle and assistance with relocation expenses.
