The Tasman Municipality, known for its extraordinary natural beauty, is located only 60 minutes from Hobart on the South East Coast of Tasmania. The Council area covers 659.3 kilometres and has a population of approximately 2400 residents. In summer months, visitors join us to share the beaches, fishing, bushwalking and other attractions, increasing the population to about 9000 people.
Reporting to the Mayor, the General Manager is responsible for the governance and general management of Council. This broad portfolio includes the operation and maintenance of Council chambers, corporate administration and Councillors; regulatory services; economic development; the works department; waste and environment.
Being a rural Council, staff numbers are relatively small – only 16.8 FTE staff, however, the team is ably supported by other local government and private contractors providing a range of 15 professional and technical services. The size of the organisation requires the General Manager to have excellent skills across the full spectrum of local government functions. A hands-on approach is necessary and for the right person, this means the role has great variety, accountability and the opportunity to be a true organisational leader.
Flexible working arrangements open for negotiation.
