Ten new jobs will be created at Huntly's North Central Catchment Management Authority as part of the state government's Agriculture Workforce Plan.
Minister for Agriculture Jaclyn Symes said nearly 60 full time jobs will be created in the next three months at the Corangamite, North Central and North East CMAs.
"Job creation right across the state is crucial to keeping the Victorian economy moving right now, and agriculture is strongly placed to drive that."
New team members will take on a range of roles, including improving local land health through revegetation and fencing of important environmental areas, such as waterways.
"This investment provides vital support for the communities that rely on our waterways and catchments across regional Victoria," Minister for Water Lisa Neville said.
New projects with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning will target critical action on pests in the Loddon Mallee.
These projects will support three teams to implement measures protecting public land and adjoining private land from invasive species such as weeds and rabbits.
The state government's $50 million Agriculture Workforce Plan has previously come under criticism from Nationals leader Peter Walsh.
In June, Mr Walsh said CMAs receive recurrent state government funding from DELWP, not Agriculture Victoria.
"Serious questions must be asked of Labor's bizarre move to shift the goal posts away from direct workforce support for our food producers and food supply chain businesses at a time when we're relying no them to meet growing demand," Mr Walsh said.
The Agriculture Workforce Plan aims to match local people to local jobs, using the Working for Victoria platform.
