Employment at NDCHS

Lifestyle...

NDCHS operates throughout the Gannawarra Shire & the Northern end of the Loddon Shire, as well as some of our services extending into the Swan Hill & Buloke Shires.  Our main office is located in Kerang in the state of Victoria, Australia and is a 3 hours’ drive from Melbourne, the States Capital.  Situated within Victoria's thriving Loddon Murray region, the major regional centres of Bendigo, Echuca and Swan Hill are only around 1 hour away by road.  The towns of Cohuna, Boort, Koondrook, Kerang, Murrabit, Lalbert, Pyramid Hill, Leitchville, and Quambatook are all part of our service area and each make up a significant part of the area's charm.

Treat yourself to a lifestyle change that provides the necessary balance between business and pleasure. Finish work at 5:30pm and enjoy a game of golf on an 18-hole course set amongst a redgum forest, take the family water skiing or swimming, or perhaps play bowls or tennis.

Fish the mighty Murray River, walk or bike ride around the many lakes & wetlands, or just enjoy the endless hours of sunshine and great weather with a BBQ at a friend’s place.

We do have a great lifestyle and we do have great opportunity – let us share it with you!
