Looking for work? You just might be in luck – Frankston City Council has announced 37 new jobs under the State Government’s Working for Victoria initiative. Offered on six-month terms, the positions include an HR and recruitment adviser; payroll officer; conservation and land management roles; cleaning and sanitisation roles; communications and marketing roles; arts therapist and officer roles; vulnerable person support roles; community support; and project co-ordinator.
Mayor Sandra Mayer said the positions would provide financial security for some of those who had lost their jobs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the longer-term unemployed.
Since its launch in April, the $500 million Government initiative has matched more than 8500 people who have lost their jobs with employers who need additional staff. During May and June, 50 people who had lost their jobs joined a major Frankston City cleaning blitz to help prevent community transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
The council has also developed a $6.434 million relief and recovery package to help the community get through the COVID-19 pandemic.
