The West Arnhem Region covers 50,000 square kilometres of spectacular outback landscape at the very top of the Top End and is home to 6,200 residents. One of Australia's most unique natural environments, the region includes the World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, remote islands, pristine beaches and dramatic escarpments.

As COO, you will have a broad-ranging portfolio that will see you leading all operational management activities associated with service delivery, while also providing the strategic direction and management for all infrastructure, asset maintenance and technical services projects. You will also be a key advisory resource for Council Services Managers regarding the delivery of local services and programs.

An innovative, strategic thinker and collegiate leader, you have the unique blend of highly tuned commercial and financial skills, and the empathy and understanding to work collaboratively with complex, sometimes challenging communities and stakeholders. You like to lead and inspire by example, work with colleagues to achieve results and have a thorough understanding of contemporary leadership and management principles. Experience within a community services setting is essential, likewise a business-related tertiary qualification.

For an ambitious, contemporary-thinking leader this is a rare opportunity to help achieve the vision for one of Australia's most iconic regions, while also enjoying the unique lifestyle only the Top End can offer.
