Central Coast Council is the 9th largest local government area in Australia, with a growing community of 300,000+. Ideally located on the northern fringe of Sydney, the Central Coast offers pristine beaches, beautiful national parks and lush hinterland, making it one of the best places in Australia to live and work.

Currently in its transitionary phase resulting from the recent merger, Council is transforming the organisation into a single entity, harnessing the merger benefits and forming a solid foundation upon which to shape the future in collaboration with its vibrant community.

The Chief Financial Officer is responsible for leading and managing a multi-disciplinary team that provides services to the business in the areas of strategic and operational financial planning, management and reporting and IT strategy and operations.

In addition, this role will be responsible for providing financial and commercial counsel and advice to the CEO and leadership team and will be integral in partnering with this group to develop a number of key initiatives that will unlock commercial efficiencies and value drivers.

Applicants require relevant tertiary qualifications, excellent financial and project management skills, an understanding of the dynamic and future demands of local government and a track record of success at executive level. Attractive remuneration packages will be negotiated.
