The Victorian Government is calling for expressions of interest (EOI) to build a new Government hub in Morwell, which will support hundreds of jobs in the heart of the Latrobe Valley.
Up to half the 150 Victorian Government positions at the GovHub will be advertised within a year, so local job-seekers can apply.
The remaining positions will be consolidated from Melbourne – including Earth Resources Regulation staff, who will establish a new head office in the Latrobe Valley.
The complex will also house Parks Victoria staff working in environment, research and other service functions, as well as staff from the EPA.
Bidders have until 27 September 2017 to submit a proposal for the project, with construction due to begin next year.
Building the GovHub complex is expected to create 100 jobs during construction and be complete by mid-2020.
The new GovHub is part of the Victorian Government’s $266 million Latrobe Valley transition package to support economic growth, create jobs and drive the businesses and industries of the future.
