On the cusp of a major transformation with a rapidly emerging iron ore province in the Mid West, and plans for a deepwater port at Oakajee, 20km north of Geraldton, it is an exciting place to be. Geraldton is recognised as one of WA’s key growth areas and the opportunities in this regional city are plentiful for professionals from all walks of life.
Positioned as a strong regional centre it also provides great opportunities for you to shift your business or start a new business and new life. The Mid West Chamber of Commerce and Industry www.mwcci.com.au is one of the strongest regional chambers in Australia and reflects the vibrant, entrepreneurial culture of our can-do city and region. Can you afford not to be part of it?
The City of Greater Geraldton council is planning for its community’s future with its internationally recognised 2029 and Beyond Sustainable Future City Region Project. This innovative project puts the future of the region in the hands of the community, giving it the power to bring to council ideas for serious consideration.
Rapid and continuing growth is expected to see the City’s population leap from about 40,000 to potentially 100,000 by 2029; and with that in mind, visionary people are always sought to envisage and progress the planning for infrastructure that will be needed in 20 years’ time.
A clean energy precinct is a vision for the region, tapping into the area’s globally unique access to the five renewable energy sources; wind, wave, solar, geothermal; and biomass.
And, also on the back of the iron ore boom, sits the possibility of more industry if Western Australia is successful in its bid to host the International Square Kilometre Array in the Murchison – the largest ‘megascience project’ in the world – a new generation radio telescope array with a discovery potential 10,000 greater than the best today.
So if you value a great work life balance, structured learning, development opportunities, the remuneration you deserve, and want an exciting career into the future, visit the City of Greater Geraldton.
