Gold Coast - Inspired by Lifestyle. Driven by Opportunity.
The City of Gold Coast is changing. A sweeping reform is underway as it transforms into a modern, globally connected city in one of the fastest-growing regions in Australia. The City is seeking a highly strategic and experienced Chief People Officer (CPO), who will be a significant leader and contributor to the City's change project.
This is pure Chief People Officer role, completely focused on addressing the organisation's evolving human resourcing needs and leading a contemporary People and Culture branch.

This position represents a renewed focus and commitment to creating a high performing organisation through the capability, performance and culture of its people.
The objectives for the Chief People Officer include;
the development and implementation of an integrated People Strategy that enables the achievement of the City's business outcomes,
building engagement and becoming a trusted partner to the business and,
leading and activating the People and Culture team that grows, optimises and uplifts the organisational capability of the City through its' employees.
The City is seeking a CPO that has experience in leadership of the human resources functions in large and complex organisations, brings a strong commercial mindset to their work and their team, and can move seamlessly between the strategic and operational requirements of the role.
Critically, the new CPO must be an exceptional leader who will create and sell a compelling vision for the future of human resourcing at the City, building consensus and commitment by demonstrating value and through building excellent, productive relationships.
Above all, the new CPO must be a genuine "people person", who brings a mix of positivity and energy, and engaging and motivating attributes to their role and contribution.
It is an exciting time to join the City of Gold Coast and contribute to its performance and organisational development as it transforms into a nimble, outcome orientated organisation. Under the leadership of the new CEO, performance and cultural transformation is underway to prepare council and the community for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
