Our culture of inclusion

We don’t just accept difference - we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our services and our community. With a focus on inclusion, accessibility and flexibility, we'll support you at every stage of your career. We recognise the importance of balance and embrace work agility, understanding that this means different things to each and every one of our employees.

We promote work life balance

We recognise the needs of employees with family responsibilities and we want to help them balance their home and work life.

Council provides a number of benefits to our staff including generous paid parental and pre-natal leave, carers leave, salary sacrifice options, flexible work opportunities, and an alternate model of employment where staff may apply to purchase up to six additional weeks of annual leave.

Your health and wellbeing comes first

We promote a safe and healthy workplace. Occupational Health and Safety is a major priority for our organisation.

As an employee you will have access to our free Employee Assistance Program, which includes professional counselling services.

We support your professional development

Here at Moonee Valley, our greatest strength is our people. We recruit people who can be better than ourselves and retain people by allowing them to grow at their own pace, providing training opportunities and offering a safe environment where they will be rewarded for their contributions.

Our commitment to professional development extends to assistance with work-related formal education courses in the form of study leave and/or reimbursement of course fees.
