Why work for us?

At Moorabool Shire Council we are focused on creating pathways for our people to enable them to be their very best, in an environment that places flexibility as the cornerstone of our people strategy.

We are constantly growing and evolving in a working environment where progression and innovation is a must; we support our people to do things differently, to challenge the way things have ‘always been done’ and to create something unique. We support this by employing a 'yes first' mantra then working together to establish a means in which to achieve.

We commit to listening to our people and generating positive change based on this feedback. The ongoing development of our people is also at the forefront so the provision of training and development across multiple platforms enables us to create our next team of superstars across Council.
