The hunt is on for a new chief executive officer for Warrnambool City Council.
Over coming days advertisements will be placed in print and online.
Mayor Robert Anderson said the council had appointed recruitment agency Davidson to help find a new CEO.
“We anticipate making an appointment before the end of the year,” he said.
“We are very confident that we will attract a strong field of applicants. The lure of working in Victoria’s most liveable city and within the Great South Coast region are great factors working in our favour.”
Current CEO Bruce Anson will not seek renewal of his employment when his contract term expires on January 3 next year.
