Employee Benefits

We believe in providing our staff with a work environment that is happy & harmonious. One that helps them become their best professionally so that they can achieve their professional goals. Here are just a few of the things that we do:

We provide ongoing training & development

Central Goldfields supports ongoing learning and professional development for all employees and teams.  Commencing with onboarding reading and e-learning compliance modules,  people have access to structured learning that includes general work skills, technical training, leadership & management, and specific local government custom seminars.  We also have a commitment to building organisational capability in the things we stand for Gender Equity (no to violence); Reconciliation and Child Safety.

As a small rural Council, there are oodles of on the job learning opportunities, and we also support employees to gain further qualifications by providing paid and unpaid study leave.

Employee salaries recognise and reward individual performance, and are competitive with salaries paid for comparable jobs and performance in other local Councils.
