Make it Work in Moyne
Published on 30 March 2023
The next phase of Moyne Shire Council's worker attraction program, Make it Work, has launched – targeting the nomadic, “van life” workforce.
Council has partnered with Commerce Moyne to offer competitive rates at our six Caravan Parks to give people a place to park their home on wheels, while working at a local business and experience everything that is great about living in our communities.
Deputy Mayor and chair of Council's Economic Development Committee Cr Daniel Meade said local businesses were invited to an online information session on April 4 to find out how they can be involved.
“It will be a quick half hour session where will run through how it works and how businesses can register to be involved,” he said.
“Commerce Moyne has launched a connection service where local businesses can register and then be connected with suitable jobseekers.
“We know workforce and housing shortages are creating issues for our local businesses right across Moyne. We also know the van life movement and nomadic lifestyle is incredibly popular post pandemic.
“This is the next phase of our popular summer Work and Play program which was aimed at Port Fairy tourism and Hospitality businesses, but we have opened this up to any business across the great shire of Moyne.”
Cr Meade said a soft launch of the program occurred over the March long weekend and 25 job seekers had registered their interest in three weeks.
“It shows there’s an appetite for it and now we need to connect those people with a business,” he said.
“We are really excited by the potential of this program, and I would encourage local businesses to attend the online session.”
The online information session will be held on April 4 between 4.30pm and 5pm. Businesses can email email@example.com to register for the session or can visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MakeitWorkProgram
