The Shire offers a great work-life balance, is a values driven organisation and is committed to developing and providing team members with opportunities.

The Shire is seeking to appoint an experienced and motivated Asset and Waste Management Coordinator who will be responsible for the Shire’s asset and waste management function and management of the Shire’s assets.
