Leading Candidates

Local government is a rewarding sector that offers diversity, challenge and career development. Councils also contribute to sense of place and provide opportunities for you to make a difference and give back to the community.

Working in Local Government is more than just a job. It’s about all of us working together to build a better and more sustainable future for the community we serve.

From senior executive appointments to management, trade, labour, contractors and entry-level positions, we post available roles on Leading Roles Vacancies and our social media channels LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. We also advertise on SEEK, NRMJobs, Planning Institute of Australia and the Australian Local Government Job Directory.

Our Leading Roles team strives for excellence! We recruit candidates based on merit and we take responsibility for our decisions! We value our relationships with our candidates, clients and dedicated team -  by working together we can deliver the best outcomes for councils and local communities.
