Employment with Council

Happy and motivated work teams don’t just happen by chance!

By adopting the best that human resources management has to offer Council has positioned itself well to face future challenges. A stable and motivated workforce is one of the keys to meeting the demands of our rapidly growing region.


As part of its commitment to a healthy work environment all new staff members undertake a comprehensive induction upon commencement, which covers:

  • Our region
  • Our workforce
  • Workplace Health & Safety
  • Discrimination and harassment 
  • Vision, mission and values
  • Equity and diversity

The impression our staff leave on our clients is one good indicator in determining whether Council’s human resource strategies are working.
