Don’t Miss Your Chance To Help Shape Your Region’s Future
Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford today urged community and business leaders to nominate for the Andrews Labor Government’s new Regional Partnerships by submitting an expression of interest by Sunday 6 March.
The Regional Partnerships provide a platform for communities to have a greater say in issues affecting their local area.
The Government recognises that each region is different, and will ensure decisions and investments reflect the priorities of local families, workers and businesses to provide a real voice for regional communities.
Regional Partnerships will be established in Barwon, Great South Coast, Central Highlands, Wimmera Southern Mallee, Mallee, Loddon Campaspe, Goulburn, Ovens Murray and Gippsland to drive local action around regional priorities and to direct them straight into the heart of the Labor Government.
The Partnerships will build on the work of existing regional leadership and advocacy groups, looking at the strategic priorities local communities have identified across economic, social and environmental issues.
We are looking for applications from people with a deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing their region, and a demonstrated ability to collaborate across community and industry groups.
Experience working within and across sectors, such as tourism, food and fibre, health and education, is highly desirable.
People interested in nominating should visit www.getonboard.vic.gov.au and search for Regional Partnerships under the vacancies tab.
Nominees are reminded to submit both an expression of interest application form and a resume to fully meet the application requirements.
