Information for applicants

The Special Minister of State, Gavin Jennings MLC and the Minister for Suburban Development, the Hon Lily D'Ambrosio MP, are now seeking nominations from business and community leaders who are interested in representing their region within Melbourne on the new Metropolitan Partnerships.

The partnerships will engage business, industry and communities to identify priorities for their partnership region by mobilising people and resources and bring that information to government.

Applicants should have a deep understanding of the challenges and strategic opportunities in their region and can demonstrate their ability to collaborate across community and industry groups.  Applicants with experience in working within and across sectors, such as retail, manufacturing, freight and logistics, health and education, is highly desirable.

The Victorian Government is committed to equality for all Victorians.  This is why we strongly encourage women, people with a disability, people of all ages, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people from the LGBTIQ community to apply.

Aboriginal Victorians are also strongly encouraged to apply. This reflects the Victorian Government's commitment to supporting Aboriginal self-determination, by ensuring that Aboriginal people are represented in the decision-making bodies that affect their lives.
