Grow with us!

Thursday, 11 April 2019

The City of Greater Geelong is in a massive growth phase.

We’re already one of Australia’s largest councils, and now we’re one of the fastest-growing.

It seems everyone wants to make the move to Geelong, so we’re busy planning to welcome another 150,000 people by 2036.

Perhaps it’s our stunning waterfront and world class events, our affordable housing, or our contemporary bars and eateries.

Maybe it’s our impressive health and educational facilities – led by Deakin University and The Gordon. 

Or our world-class surf beaches, renowned wetlands, and tranquil rural landscapes.

We’ve also built on our rich heritage of design, manufacturing and innovation – dating back 60,000 years – to become Australia’s first internationally recognised UNESCO City of Design.

All of this is driving Geelong towards a clever and creative future, and we need more great people to help us get there! So now is a great time to join us!
