Monash is Victoria’s second largest employment destination, after the Melbourne CBD.  It is the intellectual and economic heart of Melbourne where universities, research institutions, and industry meet.

Currently with more than 20,000 businesses providing almost 130,000 jobs, this substantial economy is set to grow with the area recognised as a National Employment and Innovation Cluster.

Monash Council supports the local business community and encourages ongoing economic development and growth of local jobs through key strategic areas of focus and actions outlined in its 2018 Economic Development Strategy and Action Plan ‘Growing Prosperity through Diversity’. Using evidence-based decision making, and relying on partnerships, alliances and collaborations the focus areas encompass:

  • Support for Business;
  • Places for Business;
  • Diversity in Business; and
  • Attraction and Investment Strategies.
