Frankston City Council’s partnership with Working for Victoria will see 37 unemployed Victorians return to work in council roles. The $500 million State Government initiative was launched earlier this year to help those who lost their jobs due to COVID-19 find paid work that supports the community.
Frankston City Council CEO Phil Cantillon said recruitment had begun for a variety of positions, with remaining roles to be advertised during the coming month. “As part of the program, we have been successful in our submission to appoint 37 employees for six months,” Mr Cantillon said. “This is a terrific outcome for jobseekers, the wider community and for council. I’m sure the new recruits will have a lot to offer the organisation and will help us continue supporting the community as it recovers from COVID-19.”
The council roles that are available, under recruitment and filled so far include:
• Arts and culture support officer;
• Arts therapists in performing and visual arts;
