Uniquely situated within easy reach of Sydney, Wollongong and Canberra, Wollondilly Shire is home to spectacular natural beauty and historic villages, as well as being one of Sydney’s fastest growing areas. The major growth areas of Wilton and Macarthur present extraordinary opportunity to shape the future, but also the challenge of protecting and enhancing the best of our past and rural lifestyle.

This newly established executive role offers unique lifestyle for those who enjoy the best of both city and rural living, all within reach of the beach and the bush.

Wollondilly Shire Council has recently undertaken an extensive review of its organisational framework and this opportunity now exists within the executive leadership team for the Director Shire Services.

This pivotal executive leadership position in the organisation structure reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will lead all of Council’s direct service delivery, with a key focus on maintaining and enhancing Council’s assets to meet the community’s high quality service expectations.
