For generations, Ipswich has been a significant driver of Queensland’s economic prosperity.
Ipswich is attracting unprecedented population growth accelerated by some of the largest master planned greenfield residential developments in the Southern Hemisphere.
Rarely has an Australian city with such strong heritage and history experienced a social and economic evolution as rapid or profound as this. It is redefining the way the region operated, how the community is connected and how the city is positioned nationally.
Council has an active role in influencing positive economic and workforce outcomes amid this extraordinary progress. A focus on skills development, priority industries, employment growth, export value, innovation, advocacy and collaboration is key.
Our city is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia.
As we embrace and harness this growth, we are making the most of ever opportunity. We are honing in on tomorrow’s jobs that match our can-do spirit, skills and strengths. We are making sure our connections are stronger than ever - with one another, with our neighbours and with the world.
We are confident in who we are, where we are and what we have to offer. As Queensland’s oldest regional city we have never felt so young.
Whether you’re a dreamer or a doer, we invite you to be a part of the charge that will propel our city towards prosperity. Together, we are turning ideas into action to become Australia’s most progressive, smart and connected city.
