Tweed Shire Council is the largest council on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia. Covering an area of 1300 square kilometres, the Tweed adjoins the local government areas of Byron, Lismore, Kyogle, Scenic Rim and Gold Coast, with the NSW–Queensland border to its north where it divides the twin towns of Tweed Heads and Coolangatta. 

Council is the largest employer in the Tweed with a workforce of more than 750 employees across a wide range of professions. Through a budget of about $256 million, Council delivers more than 50 services to 41,500 ratepayers and almost 100,000 residents who call the Tweed home.

In late 2021, Council was named Employer of Choice by Professionals Australia (Local Government Engineers’ Association) for its great employment practices within NSW local government.

Professionals Australia recognises what workers throughout the region already know – people choose to work at Tweed Shire Council when presented with other employment opportunities due to its:

  • employment terms
  • great workplace culture
  • amazing location.

Aboriginal Acknowledgement – Tweed Shire Council wishes to recognise the generations of the local Aboriginal people of the Bundjalung Nation who have lived in and derived their physical and spiritual needs from the forests, rivers, lakes and streams of this beautiful valley over many thousands of years as the traditional custodians of these lands.
