LGASA Recruitment (a sub-brand of LGASA Commercial) provides a superior end-to-end service to assist councils throughout the process of recruiting CEO, Executive and Senior Management positions.


The Robe District Council recently utilised the commercial services of the LGA to recruit both our CEO and the Director of Child Care on Wheels. In the case of our CEO position, there were over 80 applicants. As a new Council and a new Mayor, it was of great importance to us that we had professionals guiding us throughout this process.

We were kept well informed and had multiple opportunities to provide our feedback. This resulted in our Elected Members being proactive throughout the short listing and interview processes. We found that using the LGA Commercial Service provided us with insight into the sector and they made sure that we were clear on what we needed for our organisation.

Both Sandra Klein and Steve Nolis were terrific to deal with and the outcome for the Robe District Council in both instances was great. Their back up service and ongoing support has been fabulous.
