Located an hour north of Melbourne, in the heart of Victoria, Mitchell Shire offers both beautiful countryside and a rapidly growing community. Our Council is at the centre of this growth, providing an exciting place to work and excellent opportunities for career development.
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.
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.
Employing over 400 employees in full-time, part-time and casual positions, Mitchell Shire Council offers a great opportunity for a long and varied career in your chosen field. Whether your expertise lies in community services, planning, engineering, early education, leisure services, IT, customer service, accounting, finance or operations, we employ talented and passionate people across a huge range of industry sectors.
