Consider jobs in Goulburn

Posted: 21st Jan

Are you looking for a change in the new year? Are you feeling the need for fresh country air and a rewarding new career? Right now, there’s job opportunities in a range of roles right across regional Victoria, including the gorgeous Goulburn area in Victoria’s north.

A thriving, vibrant, progressive and multicultural region less than two hours from metro Melbourne, here’s three reasons why you should consider making the move.

1. There’s lots of roles in family violence and family services advertised

The Orange Door network is coming to Goulburn this year and is looking for people to join the team. Multiple positions are advertised here on the jobs portal right now, seeking applicants with a range of experiences and backgrounds. If you’re a new graduate or looking for a career change, this is a great chance to be part of the team bringing an Australian-first model to the region.

2. Real estate is affordable

Are you priced out of the property market in metro Melbourne? A move to the country gives you the chance to get a foot on the property ladder. Take Shepparton for example, median property prices over the last year range from $304,000 for houses to $250,000 for units. Can you image buying in metro Melbourne for those kinds of prices? Or you can start chipping away at that house deposit with plenty of affordable rental options at only $320 per week for a house and $255 per week for units.

3. There is a thriving arts scene

From the Bangerang Cultural Centre, a meeting place for Indigenous artists, to the Shepparton Art Gallery, housing one of Australia’s leading art collections, there’s plenty of opportunity to nourish the mind and soul across the region. Shepparton also holds an annual music festival and one of Victoria’s longest running regional art festivals. Keep an eye out for Greater Shepparton’s Moooving art too – a large herd of colourfully decorated life-sized fibre glass cows – who could ask for more than that?
