Under the Local Government Act, Council is required to undertake a review of the Chief Executive’s employment, at least six months before the end of their fixed term. The Chief Executive’s current five year term ends in February 2024.
Council has recently completed this important review, and has resolved that it will advertise the role, which is a requirement under the Act.
In making this decision, the Council has formally recorded the high level of satisfaction that it has had with Nigel Bickle’s leadership and performance over the past four years as its Chief Executive. It also acknowledges the influence that he has had in the transformation of the organisation and the District.
The Chief Executive’s role will be advertised today, and applications will close on Friday, 28 April 2023.
Council recognises the importance of having some certainty regarding the ongoing organisational, community and District leadership, especially given the challenges that lie ahead, and its intention is to make an appointment of its Chief Executive by May 2023.
