Ipswich City Council is in a region which is a catalyst for growth and change in SEQ. With its population set to grow to over 520 000 by 2041, new jobs and quality lifestyle are key drivers for Ipswich's rapid expansion. Ipswich City Council currently employs more than 1200 people.

With a CEO determined to restore trust between the organisation and the community it serves, the sense of legacy that this role can achieve is almost limitless.
