Blackadder Associates

We are a Sydney-based management consulting practice specialising in executive recruitment, strategic advice and development programs for local government and the private sector across Australia.

Established in 2007, we have built a reputation for providing quality services and are highly sought after for management advice and support. We understand the dynamics and complexities of local government in particular, especially in the high-pressure environment in which Councillors operate.

Our expertise covers executive recruitment, organisation and community strategic planning, management development, organisation reviews, shared services, policy development and governance reviews. We also have significant experience in providing training for councillors in governance, integrity and performance management, and for executive staff in performance management through performance agreements, mentoring and coaching.
