Working in a growing and diverse City

Hume City is one of Australia’s fastest-growing municipalities and is expected to welcome an additional 70,000 new citizens over the next two decades. This growth means there are exciting projects and services for our staff to be involved in. Hume City is located on the urban-rural fringe, 20 kilometres north-west of Melbourne and within close proximity to the Melbourne CBD and Melbourne Airport. Hume has a rich cultural diversity, with a dynamic mix of approximately 140 nationalities and 125 languages other than English spoken in the home.
