Jobs in the Geelong area
The Barwon area of south-western Victoria includes the city and suburbs of Geelong, towns on the Bellarine Peninsula including Port Arlington, Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale, the surf-coast towns including Torquay, Anglesea and Lorne, and towns in the Otways including Colac and Apollo Bay.
If you're looking for work in your local area, businesses in key industries are a good place to target your job search. Keep in mind that every industry needs people with a range of skills and experience. For example, the agriculture industry doesn't just employ farmers and the education industry doesn't only employ teachers.
There are a cross-section of strong industries in the Barwon area including infrastructure, hospitality and tourism (particularly the Bellarine Peninsula, Surf Coast towns and the Sorrento-Bellarine ferry), and agriculture, forestry and fishing (predominantly dairying but also including cereals and grains). The Geelong area in particular is an important hub for retail trade, business and technical services, manufacturing, construction, infrastructure, education, health and community services and south-western Victoria is home to many national and international companies including Shell, Alcoa, Ford and Nestle.
