During the recent past much has changed, including attitudes and priorities. It has ever been that the country migrates to the city and now it’s the reverse. The COVID experience has convinced many to escape the crush and find better, more open worlds for themselves and their families, existing and future. They have discovered what they can do without and perhaps more tellingly, what they cannot do without.
If you’re in professional services – Accountancy, Tax, Business Development or Wealth – consider Dodgshun Medlin. We have a swish Collins Street office but our engine-room is in Swan Hill, on the Murray. Visit Swan Hill on Instagram for a taste. Here, you can accelerate your CBD-grade career with stability and purpose, while enjoying a more fulfilling lifestyle. You will also gain the respect and appreciation of genuine country clients in sophisticated industry, agriculture and retail.
On the subject of Agriculture, we also have a thriving Ag department which has played a big part in transforming the Mallee from a dustbowl into a productive winter cropping region the envy of rural Australia. We’re looking for Ag stars too.
We’re not a lightweight country practice. We’re established more than half a century, our IT and other systems are first class, our services are fully integrated and we offer outstanding opportunity to broaden your knowledge and advance your career. We have no stifling partnership structure, no silos, no glass ceilings, no limit to what you can achieve. We’re growing and our strong preference is to promote from within.

Perhaps of greatest interest to career-makers is the very different way we approach professional services. See The Way We Work for more – but whether in Finance, Ag or Support, the general thrust is working and learning within multi-disciplinary teams.
You may be as bold as you wish. You could take the old-fashioned route and send us a CV. You might include (or entirely substitute) around 100 words expressing the reasons the role appeals and why you fit, or record a short supplementary video introducing yourself and your ideals.
It’s your call and you might choose now to click or tap on to your specific area of focus i.e. Finance, Agriculture or Support and see what’s featured. You won’t see all of the roles on offer so if you do not strike an immediate match, please still get in touch and tell us about yourself.
But beforehand, you might also be curious about how your world as a whole might look, professionally and in terms of lifestyle.
Life in the country is what you make it. The regional centres in which we have and intend to have presence are thriving communities offering the infrastructure you need for a rewarding daily existence. The people are genuine. There is a feeling of freedom and safety. And who will miss the daily city commute?
You might also find yourself well ahead of your peers in terms of further education, hands-on experience, professional clout and personal wealth.
Dodgshun Medlin fields a large yet close-knit team of agricultural specialists that has changed our regional landscape vastly for the better – dustbowl to productive winter cropping during a core period of 10 years.

For the past decade we have been growing our range of specialties into a complete suite and as our offering grew, it became apparent that the more elements of clients' worlds we addressed, the stronger the personal connection, the more effective our work and vastly better the outcomes.
More than that, we changed our operational structure so that on any particular piece of business, a senior Trusted Advisor guides whichever specialists happen to be relevant to work as teams. This means that everyone has the big picture, and can harness the technical depth of other specialists to enhance their own work. It also means variety and gaining a far greater grounding in all the disciplines – which is a natural career path to becoming a senior Trusted Advisor responsible for intimate understanding of client worlds, and multi-team leadership.
