Why work for us

Together, we're working to build a vibrant and sustainable regional city... and we would love for you to join us.

In the heart of the Goldfields, Kalgoorlie-Boulder is a modern and thriving city that embodies the true spirit of a regional community. Located approximately 600 kilometres east of Perth, more than 30,000 people call the city home and enjoy the amenities and facilities of a metropolitan city, with the lifestyle benefits that come from living in a place where nature and adventure are on your doorstep.

With new leadership, dedicated staff and a supportive Council, the City is working towards the vision of being a sustainable regional city of the future.

We are dedicated to working together to achieve the best possible outcomes and are guided by our intention to:

  • Be a clean and green city
  • Be a place people call home
  • Have facilities and services for everyone
  • Encourage and support economic development and diversification
  • Be a quality employer.
