Hear from our people

There are so many benefits to working at Mount Alexander Shire Council - hear from our fantastic staff about working for us in their own words.

"For the first time in my working life, I have flexible working which is not something that I’ve had before. I’m allowed to do my hours during school time, which means I’m there for my son, which is not something that I’ve had in the past." 

Lesley, Digital Inclusion Officer

"My wife and I moved up (to Castlemaine) just to get a breath of fresh air. Moving up from the city was the best thing we ever did."

Todd, Venues and Events Coordinator

"I really do love my job. I enjoy coming to work – it’s always great in the mornings, you catch up with everybody and see what they’ve done the night before." 

Scott, Local Laws Officer 

"The people I work with are really friendly. They’re all part of the community that they work in. They’re very creative, they’re very passionate about the community. I see them out on the weekend and they show genuine interest in what they do.” 

Ursula, Strategic Planner
