Job Description

  • Greater Cities Commission – non-executive roles
  • Build communities in a globally competitive region
  • Lower Hunter and Greater Newcastle, Central Coast, and Illawarra-Shoalhaven

The Greater Cities Commission will bring together the cities of the Lower Hunter and Greater Newcastle, Central Coast, and Illawarra-Shoalhaven with the Central River, Eastern Harbour and Western Parkland Cities in Greater Sydney to create a globally competitive city region. This evolution of the metropolis of three cities vision led by the Greater Cities Commission signals a new era for strategic city planning in Australia, creating a series of interconnected dynamic and resilient places, each with their clear and unique identity.
The Commission’s focus is on bringing government, industry and community stakeholders together to collaborate on future planning for a new city region that benefits local communities. Each of the six cities will build on its own signature strengths and character and enjoy the benefits of combined power in a world-class city region.
City Commissioners play a critical role through constructive relationships with stakeholders, particularly local government. They are a conduit between each City and the Commission, listening, communicating and leading the debate on policy and thought leadership to create the Region and City Plans and implement projects.
City Commissioners are appointed by the Minister for Cities after seeking advice from relevant local councils. They are remunerated non-executive roles with an indicative time commitment of up to two days a week. It is essential that a City Commissioner resides in the city they represent.
We are seeking expressions of interest from leaders who are respected for their strategic thinking, collaborative stakeholder relationships, knowledge and passion for their city’s community and opportunities in a global context.
