Local jobs boost
More than 200 Geelong jobs will become available under state government’s $500 million Working for Victoria fund, according to council.
The council announced this week it would offer six-month roles in cleaning, sanitisation, graffiti removal, waste support and more.
The fund aims to employ people who have lost their jobs due to COVID-19, with applications open at www.vic.gov.au/workingforvictoria.
Geelong’s Back to Back Theatre has appointed Tim Stitz as its new executive producer and co-chief executive officer.
Mr Stitz has worked in a number of positions in the sector at organisations including Australian Performing Arts Market, Arts Centre Melbourne and Creative Partnerships Australia.
