There is a new management structure being put in place at the moment to rationalise the org structure.
The council has some current challenges, so work is very demanding and resources are tight.

The region is an attractive place to live, so is able to attract quality people for key roles.

The economy is diverse, so there is opportunity to absorb fluctuations in commodity prices for primay industries.

The region has close connections with the broader region of mackay and townsville so this supports some greater networks for professional development.

The region has a large footprint so the requirement to travel (drive) is high, which can cause some time challenges to get work complete.
Pros
Opportunity to add value to the region for longer term
Cons
A lot of driving

Answering phone queries from client and general public. Entering all data pertaining to the Planning and Enviroment sections, allocating inspections for the Building and Plumbing Inspectors and scheduling jobs for other Enviromental officers. All office staff and Inspectors were obliging and we worked well as a team. Coming to work and doing a good day job, and learning more about each section each week which added to my ability to impart knowledge to the customers of WRC.
Pros
Social outing outside office hours with your teammates
Cons
Not enough training
