Bass Coast Shire Council is excited to announce we have received funding from the Victorian Government as part of the $500 million Working for Victoria initiative.

As part of this initiative we have received $4.3 million in funding to go towards gaining and retaining employment opportunities within our municipality. This equates to 101 jobs that will provide much-needed employment opportunities for our local economy and community, by focusing on providing important services across the municipality in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

The roles will span across a range of areas including infrastructure maintenance, environment, business/community support, asset management, customer service, human resources, transformation and technology and recovery and support.

If this is of interest to you, then you will need to sign up to the Working for Victoria recruitment platform. The platform will be used to match up job seekers with jobs relevant to their skills and experience.
