Leading Roles only recruit and provide consultancy services for local government, a deliberate strategic decision we made as an executive team some 10 years ago.
This long-standing and unapologetic focus on local government across Australia means that we understand the intricacies of the sector better than any of our competitors.
We have an intimate understanding of the strategic plan, the political sensitivities and future vision of every council we work with.
How we do it
At Leading Roles our values mean much more to us than a plaque that sits on a wall gathering dust. How we do business matters more to us than what we do. In every single interaction with our team, no matter how small that interaction is, you can be reassured that you are dealing with someone whose sole focus is on meeting your needs.
Being consistently honest and transparent, acting with integrity and delivering excellent outcomes has led to long-term relationships with councils as a trusted advisor. Something we don’t take for granted.
Our Vision is to Transform Local Government through High Performing People.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“My experience with Leading Roles has been refreshing. They provided a very personalised service and collaborated with council from the beginning to develop a clear understanding of the role and council requirements in our search for a new Director Development and Community. Leading Roles were extremely clear in outlining the process so there was never any confusion or unmet expectations. They have a deep knowledge and understanding of council and are very focused on what the client needs to ensure that the potential candidates put forward are an excellent fit both technically and culturally. I recommend them highly and would use their services again without hesitation.”
"I highly recommend Mark and his team at Leading Roles. I recently applied and was successful for the position of CEO at the City of Gold Coast, the process was expertly run by Leading Roles.
As a consequence of the outstanding job that Leading Roles did in undertaking the recruitment for the CEO position, we have subsequently used them on multiple recruitment roles and they performed exceptionally well and in a highly professional manner.
Once again, I have no hesitation in recommending Leading Roles to undertake recruitment for any position in your organisation."
