Learning and development

We're well known for prioritising continual learning and development, which is increasingly important in our fast-paced workplace. We recognise that to provide a high standard of service to the community, our employees must be competent and work together in high-performance teams.

We value your past experiences and encourage sharing and learning between peers. We support leadership growth through programs such as coaching, building resilience, adaptive leadership and a popular scholarship program we run with Swinburne University.

We encourage you to be your best with study assistance at TAFE, University or other education providers. Our program provides study leave and proportional fee reimbursement to help you get and maintain professional qualifications and competencies that help you in your work.

A supportive, work-life balance

We pride ourselves on a supportive environment where you can thrive, both in the work you do, and in how you learn and develop personally and professionally. We make sure that you feel like part of the team and that your great ideas are embraced.

We offer flexible work options so you can work full time or part time. Some of our staff also enjoy working across multiple departments in different roles.

We provide an extensive health and wellbeing program, an active social club, and staff discounts to our aquatic and leisure centres.

Our offices in the leafy suburb of Camberwell offer on-site parking, easy access via public transport and all the benefits of local shopping precincts and open spaces.

So if you want a challenging and rewarding career with a high-performing organisation in a local suburb environment, you're in the right place!
