Consider a career at Council


Local Government Week, 2-8 August 2021 is the perfect opportunit­y to celebrate our community. This year’s theme is “Locally Led”.

Edward River Council employs over 100 people - the majority of whom are from the local area. Our leadership team includes locals Suni Campbell (Director of Corporate Services) and Mark Dalzell (Director of Infrastruc­ture) along with managers Helen Flisher and Marie Sutton.

Working for Council is more than just a job, it is a career and offers many benefits from career progressio­n and training to a great work life balance.

Edward River Council employs gardeners, accountant­s, engineers, marketing executives, dozer drivers, scientists, administra­tion staff, animal rangers, town planners and building inspectors just to name a few.

So what do we do in the community?

Did you know it’s much more than delivering roads, rates, and collecting rubbish: We are a reflection of the complex communitie­s we serve each and every day.

Councils in NSW look after more than $140 billion of community assets – parks, pools and playground­s; libraries, local festivals and lighting, cemeteries and child care centres, museums and art galleries.

We help to drive the Edward River economy by contractin­g local lawyers, labourers, electricia­ns, plumbers, painters, entertaine­rs, artists and advisors.

What opportunit­ies there at Council?


At any one time, Edward River Council may have a number of job opportunit­ies available - all are published on our website.

“A career in Local

Government is something I highly recommend,” Edward River Council’s general manager Phil Stone said.

“Many Council employees start and finish their working lives here, progressin­g up the ladder to management positions,” he said.

“Our director of infrastruc­ture Mark Dalzell even undertook his year 10 work experience at the former Deniliquin Council.”

Mark said at the time, a Deni High School student, he thought he wanted to be a draughtspe­rson.

“A week at Council and I realised I wanted to be an engineer after seeing the

work they did,” he said.

Mark is now a qualified civil engineer with a Master of Business Administra­tion and a Graduate Diploma in Local Government Engineerin­g and Management.

Suni Campbell, another Deni High graduate returned to Deni after more than 20 years away working and studying.

Suni holds a Bachelor of Business (Human Resource Management) from Charles Sturt University and is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

They join Council’s other 100+ employees delivering services and facilities for the local community.
