Final stages of search for new Ipswich City Council CEO

01 November 2021

The search for Ipswich City Council’s next Chief Executive Officer is reaching its final stages with a special meeting set for 8.30am, Tuesday 2 November to endorse the preferred candidate.

Following a three-week campaign with executive recruitment firm Davidson, Council received 84 applications from a high calibre pool of candidates from across Queensland and interstate.

A special meeting will now take place tomorrow for the endorsement of a preferred candidate by full Council.

The final three candidates will provide a short presentation to Council in closed session, followed by a question-and-answer session with all Councillors. The meeting can be viewed on Council’s YouTube channel here.

Pending a positive decision, the next stage of the process will involve entering into negotiations with the preferred candidate.

A final announcement is expected in the coming weeks.
