The City of Darebin is the local government for Melbourne's inner northern suburbs of Northcote and Fairfield, out to the traditional middle ring suburbs of Reservoir and Bundoora and includes Alphington (part), Kingsbury, Macleod (part), Preston, Reservoir and Thornbury.
Darebin is home to one of the largest, most diverse communities anywhere in the State in terms of cultures, language (more than 118 languages are spoken), religions, socio-economic background, employment status, occupation, and housing needs. We actively represent our community’s diversity and aim to create an inclusive work environment that values the contribution of all employees and treats all employees with dignity and respect.
We are leaders in Environmental Sustainability and Social Justice, often collaborating with neighbouring municipalities to promote awareness and encourage community participation. We also provide flexible working arrangements and excellent working conditions that are supported across the organisation.
Darebin City Council is one of the largest employers in the municipality with an operating expenditure budget $120 million and capital expenditure budget of $37 million. Darebin has a population of over 144,000 and we are also home to two significant tertiary organisations well serviced by public transport.
