Wyndham is an exciting place to work, where our staff are given the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of our community. At Wyndham our staff are provided with an opportunity to be proud of their work – where work is not just a job, but a career.
Wyndham is one of Australia’s fastest growing municipalities. Located in the western growth corridor and is planning on welcoming over 200,000 new residents by 2040. Our people are hard at work designing the precincts, building the infrastructure, developing the policies and delivering the programs that will ensure the City is prepared for our exciting future.
As an organisation, we are exceptionally proud of our commitment to continuous improvement, as demonstrated through a series of future-focused projects and organisational innovation. We have a strong commitment to staff development, providing our people with the training and development required for them to achieve their career goals and aspirations.
Our people are our most valued asset. We are focused on building a culture that empowers every person to do their best work. Flexibility is built right into our DNA and we are committed to cultivating an inclusive workplace that celebrates a skilled and diverse workforce.
Not your typical Council, Wyndham City is spearheading a range of City-shaping and innovative projects to improve liveability for our residents, and to attract visitors. Examples of this include our partnership with the Western Melbourne Group, as we work together to build a 15,000-seat stadium and sporting precinct in Tarneit, home to the A-League’s newest soccer team Western United FC – as well as a range of public-private partnerships with developers to rejuvenate the Werribee City Centre. To support the delivery of these ‘game changing’ projects, our project management office is working in partnership with the greater organisation to provide advice and guidance on best practice project management and ensure that we deliver our ambitious program on time and within budget.
Recently adopting a Climate Futures Office, Council is also elevating its role to make the City a cleaner, greener and prosperous place for future generations. Taking the economic and environmental futures into consideration for our City. Further to this, another addition to our organisation is our Social and Economic Inclusion department. Partnering with local industry to drive and enable economic participation and inclusive employment across businesses within Wyndham.
