Why work for us
The Municipal Association of Victoria is the peak representative and lobbying body for Victoria's 79 councils. We were formed in 1879 and the Municipal Association Act 1907 appointed the MAV the official voice of local government in Victoria.
Today, we are a driving and influential force behind a strong and strategically positioned local government sector. Our role is to represent and advocate the interests of local government, lobby for a 'fairer deal' for councils, raise the sector's profile, ensure its long-term security and provide policy advice, strategic advice, capacity building programs and insurance services to local government.
We value diversity and employ young people, mature-age workers, working parents, people with disabilities, and people from Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander and non-English speaking backgrounds.
Our motto is 'pro bono publico' – for the public good. Through our activities, we improve the lives of all Victorians and you can help us in our valuable work.
Our values-based, diverse, inclusive and flexible culture enables our people to bring their whole selves to work and creates an energising working environment, ensuring our people feel good, cared for and proud to work for us.
Our values are – Walk the Talk, Lead with Impact, Service Excellence, Our Smarts, and Care and Responsibility and are embedded across the organisation.
