Under Working for Victoria, Council will provide jobs for unemployed people – whether they have lost their jobs due to the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) or have been without work for a longer period of time.
The $500 million Victorian Government initiative is matching people that have lost their jobs with employers who need additional staff.
Council was successful in applying for the fund after it was announced earlier this year.
Council will offer roles on six-month terms in jobs ranging from business recovery officers to outdoor roles including drainage and street furniture maintenance officers
