As the Region of Choice, Gladstone has long held a reputation as both Queensland’s powerhouse and a lifestyle destination for families looking for quality of life that is second to none. There is something for everyone in the Region, from city to rural and coastal living, and a strong regional economy combined with world-class beaches, numerous community facilities and untouched national parks.

Gladstone Regional Council is further developing its strategic and operational capability to ensure the delivery of quality, cost effective and sustainable services meets the current and future needs of ratepayers and the community. As a result, Council seeks to appoint a highly capable and experienced Executive into the General Manager Operations role.

  • Introducing a portfolio management approach to infrastructure/works delivery and improving processes and practices to optimise planning and resources.
  • Developing and implementing robust, process driven and commercially driven contracting strategies across the portfolio.
  • Driving a safe work culture across all aspects of the team’s activities.

To make a positive impact, you will be a proven progressive leader with true strategic insight and the ability to lead transformation and build organisational capability and culture. Your experience will include a minimum of 10 years’ experience in a senior strategic leadership role overseeing the operations, maintenance or project/program delivery in a highly technical infrastructure sector (civil engineering, utilities, transport etc.). You can demonstrate strong influencing/negotiation skills and political astuteness.
