Supervisor (Open Spaces)

Working for Clarence Valley Council’s community development team is much more than just a job. It’s about the community we live in. It’s about building the future of our area. Whether we’re shaping policy or working with the community, we all share the common goal of making the Clarence a great place to live. If you want your career to be more than turning a profit for an organisation – then you’ll find the career you’re looking for with us.

Living in the Clarence Valley, you’ll be able to enjoy the local lifestyle: catching a fish or a wave before work and river views on your daily commute; or perhaps you’d like to ride your horse on a hobby farm instead. We have a work/life balance that is exactly as it should be – balanced.
