Chief Executive Officer Employment and Remuneration Committee

The Chief Executive Officer Employment and Remuneration Committee supports the Council in the performance management process for the Chief Executive Officer and, where required, the employment of a new Chief Executive Officer.

What does the committee do?

The objectives of the CEO Employment and Remuneration Committee are to support the performance management of the Chief Executive Officer by:

  • providing advice to Council regarding the development each year of Key Performance Indicators;
  • periodically monitoring the ongoing performance of the Chief Executive Officer as assessed against the adopted Key Performance Indicators;
  • providing an end of year report to Council on the achievement or otherwise by the Chief Executive Officer of the adopted Key Performance Indicators; and
  • reviewing the remuneration package and conditions of employment of the Chief Executive Officer and providing advice to Council for a determination.

The committee makes recommendations to Council in relation to the employment of a Chief Executive Officer by:

  • liaising with the appointed Executive Search Consultant in connection with the recruitment processes;
  • establishing and managing a process to recruit a Chief Executive Officer, designed to ensure that Council can select the best available candidate from a short list of preferred candidates (with or without a recommendation from the Committee);
  • providing advice to Council on the remuneration package and conditions of employment of the Chief Executive Officer; and
  • preparing documentation relevant to the Chief Executive Officer’s employment and remuneration, including Council reports and contractual documents, for the approval of Council.

Who are the committee members?

All Councillors are automatically appointed as members of the committee.
