We have a 720-strong workforce which has a commitment to working for its customers. We believe in the importance of what we do—that we make a difference to our communities—so we want the best people to help us achieve our goals. In aiming to be an employer of choice, we are reviewing our employment conditions to identify areas for improvement.

See the FAQs on this page and the information under Positions vacant to find out how to apply for a position at the council. Work experience is also available. Those who undertake a placement get on-the-job experience and a chance to refine and develop their skills.

As to tenders, we have a fair, equitable and professional purchasing process that ensures all interested suppliers are given a chance to bid for our business. Tenders are used as a method of purchase for works, goods or services valued over $50,000. Tenders over $100,000 are open tenders and are publicly advertised.
