Work or Volunteer for Council
The Gannawarra Shire Council is a great place to work or volunteer. With a diverse range of occupations and volunteer opportunities the Shire offers a rewarding and supportive environment in which to work and contribute to our community.
We foster a culture that is professional, harmonious, enjoyable, productive, safe and equitable for all. We do this through:
Shared understanding about work objectives/expectations
Flexible work practices that allow staff/volunteers to achieve a balance with their non-work/volunteer life
Recognition and celebration of achievements
Employment is an important factor in any move. One big bonus in Gannawarra is the proximity of local towns and also larger centres in adjoining municipalities. Kerang, Cohuna and Koondrook/Barham are all only 20kms apart meaning employment opportunities are close by. Relocating to Regional Victoria(PDF, 3MB)
In addition to this we provide a range of workplace activities/opportunities such as:
Training and professional development
Health and fitness information and support
Participation in charity fundraising events such as Wear Orange for SES day
Participation in the meals on wheels program
Support for participation in volunteer emergency services or armed forces reserves
Participation in community celebrations such as Reconciliation Week events
As an organisation we are committed to equity and will ensure that all workplace employment matters such as recruitment and selection, promotion, training and pay and conditions are free from any form of discrimination.
