Our People - Services & Values

Service is our business

When you join North Sydney Council you become a part of a team that is dedicated to providing a wide range of quality services to North Sydney residents and the larger community. Our aim is to ensure North Sydney remains a welcoming, well-designed, safe and beautiful environment for residents, workers and visitors.

Your role may be as a direct service provider or you may provide service to other persons in Council who, in turn, provide direct service to the public.

As you can see, service is our business.
