Journalism and storytelling

Spark Rural produces a variety of material that promotes sea and tree change and regional revitalisation.

In 2018, Vanessa Wiltshire worked part-time for Parliament Victoria (Office of Steph Ryan, MP). In this capacity she produced a 32 page magazine, “Spotlight on Kilmore” (see link). Vanessa has written for Domain (Fairfax/Nine) and is currently employed part-time at McPherson Media as the journalist for McIvor Times.

Find talent - Find a job

If we had a dollar for every time we heard a city person tell us they’d move to the country if they knew where the jobs were, we’d buy an investment property in Melbourne. If we had another dollar for every time we heard a regional business owner complain that they couldn’t find talent, we’d buy at least two more!

Spark Rural is NOT a recruitment agency. Think of us as a community strengthening and economic development hybrid, with people and SME business at the heart.

While we don’t fit “neatly” into a box, we also know that you don’t either.

We believe the future of towns and communities lies in people, storytelling and collaboration.

Spark Rural has large and trusted networks in both the city and the country. We are also good at connecting great people together.

If you’ve got a regional business and are struggling to find the right talent, why not get in touch?

If you’re a prospective tree or sea changer then join our fun and informative Facebook community, “Find a job in regional Victoria (Australia)”.

Come and find out what’s possible for your life beyond Melbourne or Sydney.

Together, we can build something great.
