Job Description

Glen Innes Severn Council | Chief Financial Officer | Glen Innes

If you’re looking for a tree change, or a wonderful region to raise your family, Glen Innes Highlands has plenty for everyone. Known as Celtic Country, there’s culture, nature and outdoor experiences including fishing, kayaking and hiking, or discovering gourmet food trails, distilleries and cellar doors.

Glen Innes Severn Council is looking for their next CFO; an outstanding opportunity to apply your professional skills while maintaining life balance. You will play a key role in shaping the long-term financial future of Glen Innes Severn Council while influencing cultural, customer service and continuous improvement programs.

Reporting to the Director Corporate and Community Services and part of the CEO’s leadership team, this is a diverse role with strategic and operational leadership responsibilities.

Key Responsibilities include:

  • Develop and implement council’s financial sustainability strategy in line with council’s Strategic Planning Framework, maximising the impact of council’s budget and minimising financial risk.
  • Build the financial performance of council’s business units through analysis, review and building capacity in non-financial managers.
  • Lead, motivate, develop and support the finance team and staff across the organisation to deliver sound financial management and a high-performance culture. 

An attractive remuneration package of $150,000 is offered, with allowances and salary packaging options available.

Council’s vision is to lead a confident, inclusive community that is resilient and proud of its spirit and collective achievements, heritage and environment. It is committed to its values of respect, integrity, courage, honesty and transparency and is seeking a CFO who is aligned to these values.

Glen Innes Highlands is a terrific place with the countryside reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands. This Celtic connection is honoured at the annual Australian Celtic Festival, a highlight of the events calendar. This picturesque region is also on the Fossickers Way and nicknamed gemstone country because of sapphires and other gems discovered here. Gem fossicking and World Heritage wilderness are all part of the charm of this amazing region in the New England High Country of New South Wales.
