Unique, Visionary and Strategic Leadership Opportunity
Lead the Future Growth of Land Development in the ACT
Harness Community Engagement and Innovation for Growth

The ACT Government is passionate and committed to continuing to grow the ACT with strategic and well designed land and estate development, affordable housing solutions and strong social outcomes to support the future growth of our vibrant region into the 21st century. On 1 July 2017 the ACT Government formally established a new agency to develop and implement its ongoing commitment to suburban development.

The Suburban Land Agency will be responsible for delivering all Government land sales and acquisitions, including undertaking estate development, affordable housing and non‑precinct urban renewal projects.

The creation of this organisation provides a landmark opportunity to the new CEO to continue to shape Canberra which has been recognised by the OECD as one of the best cities in the world to live. This role will report directly to the Agency's governing board and provide the opportunity for a highly motivated executive with exceptional leadership skills, commercial acumen, and a sound understanding of estate or land development to make a mark in the future growth and diversification of the ACT.

Candidates will be visionary, strategic thinkers with demonstrable capabilities in organisational leadership, good governance, financial management, and fostering a high performance culture across the organisation. To satisfy the demands of this role, candidates will need to have extensive experience at an executive level with proven ability to balance commercial, public policy and governance objectives within a highly strategic and diverse environment.

This is a re-advertised position following an increase in remuneration arrangements determined by the ACT Remuneration Tribunal (Determination 15 of 2017). The successful candidate will be entitled to an annual salary of $312,418, which is the equivalent of an ACT Public Service SES Level 3.10 position.

Enquiries and requests for an information pack on the CEO position can be made to Matthew Smee - Managing Consultant - Hudson Global Resources Canberra on 0439 074 251 or email

Applications close on cob 18 July 2017.

Your application will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
