The Shire of Gnowangerup is looking for an enthusiastic, team-orientated person with a good eye for detail to fill the role of Executive Assistant to the CEO for a 12-month period commencing in mid-October 2017.

Duties include maintaining the Shire’s website, co-ordinating Council functions, managing the CEO’s correspondence and calendar, and maintaining statutory registers. The successful applicant may also be responsible for preparing minutes and agendas for Council.

The position is a full-time role, with some additional hours required and, ideally, would suit someone with previous local government experience. It is anticipated, however, that there will be a handover period to assist with the transition. 

A Position Description can be obtained by contacting Abbey Sergeant on abbey.sergeant@gnowangerup.wa.gov.au 

Applicants are encouraged to contact the Chief Executive Officer on 9827 1007 for further information. 

Applications should consist of a covering letter, CV and statement addressing the selection criteria of not more than 5 pages. All applications are to be marked Private and Confidential and addressed to the Chief Executive Officer. 

All submissions must be emailed to abbey.sergeant@gnowangerup.wa.gov.au or via normal post to the Shire of Gnowangerup, 28 Yougenup Road, Gnowangerup WA 6335, and be received by 4.00 pm Friday 4 August 2017.
