Job Description

Synergy is Western Australia’s largest integrated generator and retailer of electricity with revenue over $3b and more than one million residential, business and industrial customers. With an unprecedented energy transition underway, Synergy is accelerating its investments in renewables and distributed energy resources while continuing to operate gas and thermal generation assets.

The new CEO will lead Western Australians to their intelligent energy future through an energy transition that is customer centric, sustainable, and efficient. This will be achieved through understanding rapidly changing customer needs, continuing to execute on corporate strategy, role model the values and achieve a net zero carbon future by 2050.

The CEO will lead the development and execution of strategies to deliver company objectives, maximising operational performance, customer engagement, employee engagement, risk, safety, and environmental performance, with both a long term and short-term approach, while delivering disciplined financial performance resulting in sustainable, satisfactory returns to our owner.

This is an opportunity for a capable and authentic leader with a high level of knowledge and experience of the electricity industry. A track record of driving performance within a complex environment, structured thinking, and well-developed stakeholder management skills where you have worked collaboratively will be essential for your success.

During a time of significant change and advancing technologies, this role will be critical in leading adaptively with Synergy’s partners, customers, communities and government.

Applications must be lodged electronically by COB 14 March 2022. For further enquiries, please email Julie Colvin, Managing Partner at or Harry Clape at quoting reference number 29321. A briefing document is available on the Derwent company website:
