Penrith City Council continues to strengthen its relationship with Lachlan Shire Council, this time through the assisted recruitment of an employee.
Lachlan Shire, located in the state’s Central West, recently called on Council to help with its search for a suitable candidate to fill the role of Governance and Risk Officer.
Following the interview process a local candidate was successful in being appointed to the position. Council is establishing a remote working space in Penrith, to allow Lachlan Shire’s newcomer the opportunity to work from Western Sydney when they are away from the Condobolin office.
Penrith Council’s General Manager, Warwick Winn, said Council is grateful for its partnership with Lachlan Shire, which is beneficial for both councils and their communities.
“Penrith City Council is thrilled to have and be able to maintain a wonderful relationship with Lachlan Shire – this latest achievement reflects the success of our ongoing support of each other,” Mr Winn said.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for not only the successful candidate but also the wider community as Lachlan Shire’s newest employee will be able to network with colleagues at both councils, which will nurture our mutual understanding as well as the sharing of ideas and experiences.
“Council entered into a Friendship Agreement with Lachlan Shire Council back in 2006 and our active friendship has seen some fantastic exchanges over the years, including school and sporting events and council-to-council activities.
“I look forward to seeing what the next few years of this partnership brings and Council staff hope to visit the Lachlan region again soon.”
