About us

Great reasons to work for us

Our employees work at Northern Grampians Shire Council because they want to make a contribution to their community.  We provide a supportive and flexible environment that values the balance between work and our employees' personal lives. We work with our staff to develop working arrangements that enable them to accommodate their personal commitments and enjoy all that our communities have to offer.  

Our progressive activity-based work environment allows our employees to choose where they work each day. We provide a variety of different work spaces, including quiet areas for tasks that require a high level of concentration, and collaboration rooms to facilitate the sharing of ideas. We also provide sit-stand desks to ensure our employees are comfortable while they work. 

We are constantly searching for new technology that allows employees to get on with their jobs in the office, away from the office and out in the community.

To successfully deliver our services, we need talented, committed employees across a range of skilled, trade, professional and managerial roles.  We offer career development opportunities through graduate placements, apprenticeships, traineeships, work experience and career progression.

In addition to supporting the development of the community you live in, there are many other benefits to working in local government. These include:

  • Paid parental leave
  • Flexible work arrangements
  • Ability to bring your own device
  • Ability to purchase additional leave
  • Job sharing
  • Discounted gym membership 
  • An employee assistance program
