Employment & Business Opportunities
There are many employment opportunities on Flinders Island – you just need to know where to look. Local businesses are always seeking qualified employees and, due to ongoing development and business expansion, qualified trades people are in especially high demand. Search the Furneaux Business Directory or contact Council who may be able to assist in matching your skills with local businesses in need. With Flinders’ beef, lamb, wallaby and seafood products growing in popularity, and tourism numbers rising annually, the region is steadily expanding.
Under an hour in travel time from Melbourne, the region provides an ideal base for those wishing to escape the challenges of day-to-day city life, but still want the benefits of a major metropolitan centre to be easily accessible. Flinders Island is already home to writers, consultants and experts in a variety of fields, all working remotely while enjoying the many lifestyle benefits of island living.
If you are entrepreneurial the Furneaux Islands might be just the place for you; the community has always been a haven for innovators and people who have a “can do” attitude. The region is full of opportunities for people who are brave, creative and willing to work hard. Sometimes all it takes is a leap of faith!
