The NSW Government has opened a pilot flexible work hub in Gosford City Centre for Central Coast-based Government employees.

 The work hub is a partnership between the Department of Planning and Environment and Property NSW in line with State Government priorities to provide for more jobs on the Central Coast, offer a better work/life balance, revitalise Gosford City Centre and help relieve pressure on transport systems.

Parliamentary Secretary for Planning and the Central Coast, Scot MacDonald MLC said the work hub will be of great benefit to a proportion of the 4,000 Government workers living on the Central Coast who commute each day to jobs in Sydney and Newcastle.

 “The work hub is a smart and efficient way to provide more jobs on the Central Coast, enhance lifestyle and help activate the Gosford City Centre,” Mr MacDonald said.

“The Central Coast has one of the largest commuter populations in Australia and this initiative shows the Government is committed to increasing opportunities for people to live and work in this fabulous region”.

Accommodating a rotation of up to 45 Government employees weekly, the work hub is a pilot to test flexible work arrangements for potential application in the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation (DFSI) building, currently under construction near the Gosford waterfront.

When completed in early 2020, the DFSI building will house 300 Government employees.

The work hub is situated in the office space behind the recently opened Central Coast Regional Plan Info Centre on the corner of Mann and Donnison Streets and is open 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.
