Job Description

Wollondilly Shire Council is one of the fastest growing councils in NSW. With the new Badgery’s Creek airport only 12km’s away and with Wilton New Town set to be the eighth largest town in New South Wales, growth is key to its future. In this role you will play a key part in the Sustainable Growth unit, undertaking strategic planning tasks and projects to facilitate the long term growth of Wollondilly Shire.

Located in a unique and enviable geographical position - only 1.5 hours’ drive from Sydney CBD, 45 minutes’ drive from Liverpool and 45 minutes from Wollongong – the Strategic Planner role offers all the benefits of lifestyle living but with all the professional challenges of a rapidly growing peri-urban Council. 

In this job you get to work in a fast paced and rapidly growing environment where you will have a lot of responsibility and an opportunity to really make a difference in the strategic development within Wollondilly Shire Council.

Part of the Western Sydney City Deal, the area will see a critical amount of Government investment rolled out for transport, jobs and infrastructure across Western and Southwest Sydney. As a Strategic Planner, you will undertake a range of strategic planning tasks, including updates and preparations to planning proposals. You will assist on a wide range of strategic planning matters, as they arise, and ensure a quality outcome.

With the ability to prepare high quality, accurate written studies and reports, you will also have a strong knowledge and understanding of the legislative process in Local Government in regards to strategic planning. You will have the willingness to undertake community engagement activities, including meetings and functions out of hours. Whilst working with a team of experienced professionals, you will have the ability and commitment to the Council’s vision, with the aims to build a resilient, safe and supported workplace whilst providing effective services for the community.

An attractive remuneration package commensurate with the location and role is offered.
