Inside City of Adelaide
At City of Adelaide we are referred to as “The Corporation” and we are led by our CEO and four Directors to achieve the administrative function and projects that Council approves. We are made of many portfolios and programs, each being responsible for working collaboratively to deliver outcomes, services as well as to carry out the day to day requirements of the City on behalf of Council.
This team provides high level advice to the CEO on key business priorities and activities across all portfolios (listed below) and the Office of the Lord Mayor to ensure that performance is consistent with the City of Adelaide Vision, Principles and Strategic Plan.
