Narrabri Shire Council is a progressive, Bluett award-winning council located in the northwest of New South Wales.

Following the election of a new council in December 2021, Narrabri Shire Council is now seeking a new General Manager to lead the organisation.

The General Manager drives the Council's strategic priorities, shapes the organisation's response to current and emerging issues, and has ultimate responsibility for leading an organisation that places its community at the centre of its strategy, planning, and operations.

Narrabri is experiencing a once-in-a-generation investment boom, with $7B in projects across gas, agriculture, clean energy, and inland rail. The new General Manager will bring sound commercial acumen to lead the council's investor stakeholder engagement and shape the organisation's response as a partner to this investment.

The Council is seeking an experienced and connected leader who is an expert in the business of local government. With a new Community Strategic Plan, the General Manager will lead the people, programs, and initiatives that create a sustainable, progressive, and well-serviced community for the current and future residents of Narrabri.
