Launceston begins search for next CEO

City of Launceston Council has commenced the recruitment process for a new Chief Executive Officer, following the resignation of Michael Stretton.

Mr Stretton announced his resignation in November, and will leave the City of Launceston at the end of the month to take up the Chief Executive Officer position at the City of Hobart.

City of Launceston Mayor, Matthew Garwood said the Council would advertise the role nationally and expected to see strong interest in the position.

“The role of Chief Executive Officer is critical to the good governance of a local council,” Mayor Garwood said.

“The position requires oversight of the day-to-day operations of our organisation, collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders and community members, liaison with other tiers of government and much more.

“We are seeking a passionate and ‘can do’ leader who understands the local government sector, the importance of a positive and constructive workplace culture and who can work collaboratively with the Councillors to help make Launceston an even better place to live.

“We’ll seek candidates from across Australia, and even globally, but we’ll also welcome applicants who already work for the City of Launceston in a different capacity and who may be wishing to take the next step in their career.”
