Working with us means making a real difference.
In search of a career at a progressive local council?
Dreaming of a lifestyle change and rewarding work in a regional area?
The Bega Valley is a community working together; striving to create a balance between quality of life, economic progress, sustainable development and environmental conservation.
A career with Council is an opportunity to do good work and make a real contribution to that balance, all against a backdrop of a picturesque natural environment.
In recent years our community has stood shoulder to shoulder through drought, bushfires and now COVID-19. Our future sees us hard at work pulling together; recovering, rebuilding and creating a resilient future.
Walking with the community
Council’s role is to walk with the community; to listen, understand and do the work to advance its needs by advocating on its behalf to other levels of government and implementing social, economic and built improvements.
We strive to be sensitive to the importance of home and of place. A deep respect for privacy, dignity, and connection to land and community guide us in our work, every day.
A career at Bega Valley Shire Council will connect you to rewarding and interesting work for a diverse community stretching from Bermagui to Bemboka and south to Wonboyn.
The work we do covers a wide range of services including children services, libraries, customer service, finance, engineering, project management, road works, water management, looking after our parks, gardens and town centres, environmental and management/executive roles. Most recently we’ve added recovery, rebuilding and resilience to what we do.
Meaningful training and career opportunities underpin our supportive workplace culture; we want to motivate and inspire each other to improve ourselves and our community. Our values are at the heart of this; People Matter, Learning is Important and we Can Do, Engaging the Whole Organisation is Key (PLaCE).
We work to support one another so that we can continue to support our community.
