Employment Pathways

Welcome to the Bright Futures Program at Wyndham City.

We have introduced a hybrid model of working in which staff are working remotely and on-site intermittently making all practical placements difficult to facilitate. Whilst we are unable to guarantee a placement, where possible we will assess each application on a case-by-case basis and endeavour to accommodate the placement, whether that be online, in the office or a mix of both.

Please visit the relevant links below for updated information on Council’s direction to resume services. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Should you have any questions, please email employmentpathways@wyndham.vic.gov.au

There’s never been a better time to start something more.

You might have heard of us. We are the engine room behind one of Australia’s fastest growing regions - a team of over 1500 people all working together to prepare the region to almost double in size by 2040. Every day, we are hard at work designing the precincts, building the infrastructure, developing the policies and delivering the programs that keeps the city humming.

But we can’t do it alone.

We have opportunities for local students and residents to join us and explore Wyndham City behind the scenes. This includes student placements, early talent programs and more.
