Chief Operating Officer
Vacancy No: C102/2015
Contract appointment up to 5 years
Working collaboratively with the Chief Executive and the Executive team, the Chief Operating Officer will identify ways to maximise investment and harness opportunities to deliver quality infrastructure for the benefit of South Australians now and into the future. This includes leading the delivery of a coordinated transport network system, effective and efficient public transport services and sustainable property and facility services. Most importantly, the Chief Operating Officer will drive the change agenda and must have a strong focus on people, place, culture and safety whilst delivering the business of the state.
We are looking for a dynamic leader to ensure the organisation builds on current success and is strategically positioned for the future.
The Chief Operating Office will be a member of an Executive team that is highly respected by industry - personally and professionally, and sets extraordinarily high standards of personal behaviour for themselves and expects these standards to be replicated in the people they lead.
They must be able to balance people priorities with project priorities and devote appropriate amounts of time to both and be fearless change leaders and service improvers.
Other requirements include being flexible, responsive and innovative and be able to shift culture through their interpersonal skills and behaviours.
They will also need to be politically astute and be able to interact well at the most senior levels of industry and government and engage closely and effectively with a wide range of stakeholders.

In addition applicants must complete and return the Cover Sheet quoting the vacancy number and an Employment Declaration with their application. The SA Government is an Equal Opportunity Employer and safety is a core value.
