Careers at Mitchell


Located less than an hour north of Melbourne, we offer the best of both worlds - beautiful countryside and a rapidly growing community. We are at the centre of this growth, providing an exciting place to work and excellent opportunities for career development.

Our Community

Situated just 40kms north of Melbourne, Mitchell Shire spans an area 2,864 sq kms. With the Hume Freeway running through the shire, it is in easy commuting distance from Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs and Bendigo.   

An area characterised by rolling hills, rural plains and the mighty Goulburn River. Mitchell Shire Council proudly supports the region, which is home to historic pubs, picturesque vineyards, festivals and heritage buildings.

Our Growth

The population of Mitchell Shire is set to double within the next 15 years, making us the second fastest growing regional municipality outside metropolitan Melbourne.  This growth creates challenges for our Council every day, such as how do we develop an infrastructure to support this population growth and how do we meet the needs of both rural and urban communities.

These challenges give our employees exposure to different and stimulating projects that enhance their skills and capabilities. We believe that personal and professional development of our employees is key in meeting the needs of our growing community.
