Working at Council

Parkes Shire Council is striving to build a connected, vibrant and sustainable regional city.

Since its establishment in January 1981, Parkes Shire Council has earned a reputation as an innovative, progressive organisation with a proven ability to deliver outstanding outcomes for our community.  As a two-time winner of the AR Bluett Memorial Award - the state's oldest and most prestigious local government award - we take pride in our culture of continuous improvement and excellence.

Embracing a LEAN philosophy across our organisation and operations, we're constantly looking at how we can do things better in order to maximise the value we deliver.  We are committed to developing and retaining a skilled, energetic and professional workforce to ensure that we continue to provide the best possible services, facilities and infrastructure to our community. 

We strive to provide a flexible, safe and inclusive and work environment for our people, and are proud to have achieved formal accreditation under ISO 45001, the internationally recognised standard in Occupational Health and Safety.

If you're seeking a challenging and rewarding career, a range of lifestyle benefits, and an opportunity to contribute to a high-performing organisation, then we're the right place for you.
