Careers at Mitchell

Strategically located just 40km north of Melbourne, Mitchell Shire is one of Victoria’s fastest growing outer metropolitan municipalities. We offer the best of both worlds - beautiful countryside and a rapidly growing community, providing an exciting place to work and excellent opportunities for career development.

Our Community

Situated just 40kms north of Melbourne, Mitchell Shire is a large municipality covering 2864 square kilometres. With the Hume Freeway running through the shire, it is in easy commuting distance from Melbourne’s northern suburbs and Bendigo. 

More and more people are recognising the benefits of living, investing and doing business in Mitchell Shire. The population of 45,000 is expected to reach 250,000 in the next 25-30 years. Most growth is expected in the southern townships of Beveridge, Kilmore, Kilmore East and Wallan.

We're embracing the opportunities and responding pro-actively to the challenges of this growth to ensure residents have access to the services and facilities they need, can access local jobs and can enjoy a quality lifestyle of choice.

Our Growth

Our growth creates challenges for our Council every day, such as how do we develop infrastructure to support this population growth, how do we meet the needs of both rural and urban communities and how do we ensure people can access services, facilities and jobs locally.

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.
