BBP Connect and BBP Jobs launched

Two communications initiatives have been launched in recent months specifically to help businesses remain competitive and sustain growth.

The Bayswater Business Precinct (BBP) is a thriving business and employment community that is home to 4,800 businesses and 30,000 local jobs.

It generates more than $14 billion in revenue, which represents approximately 12.5 per cent of the total revenue generated in Melbourne’s east.

In recognition of the vital role this precinct plays in both the regional and state economies, Knox, Maroondah and Yarra Ranges Councils have partnered with Localised to develop a powerful business to business networking tool (BBP Connect) and jobs hub (BBP Jobs) for Bayswater Business Precinct.

BBP Connect and BBP Jobs will enable businesses to connect to the local people, knowledge, networks and opportunities they need to succeed.


Did you know that more than 80% of local businesses want to support other local business but less than half actually do? The number one reason why they don’t is that it’s hard to find local businesses and experts. BBP Connect changes that.


The BBP Connect digital platform will amplify connectivity between businesses and people within the region and will stimulate regional economic activity by:

  • Increasing business visibility and promoting local supply chain capability and expertise.
  • Increasing the connectivity and collaboration of local businesses.
  • Sharing local good news stories, business networking events and training.
  • Accessing local business leads and procurement opportunities, particularly for large projects.
  • Connecting local people to local employment opportunities.

Please visit BBP Connect and get connected today.


BBP Jobs

The BBP Jobs hub will enable local employers to post job and contract opportunities in the Bayswater Business Precinct. The platform will create visibility of the diverse employment opportunities in the precinct along with the skills and talents available in the local community.

This platform will create a skills marketplace where local businesses and local talent can connect with each other.

Both initiatives are designed to position the BBP as a great place to invest, start and grow a business.
