Mr Nick Staikos

Nick Staikos

Meet Nick

Before entering Parliament, Nick worked for ANZ Bank while studying at Monash University. He also served as elected councillor for Glen Eira City and worked for various state and federal Members of Parliament.

As a lifelong resident of the Bentleigh electorate, Nick ran for Parliament to ensure that local schools had modern, comfortable facilities for our students and teachers.

The priorities Nick has for his community are to ensure that local schools are properly resourced to provide the best possible education, that sports clubs have modern facilities, that roads and public transport network are safe and reliable, and that local health services are accessible.

Nick’s vision for Victoria’s future is that the Government continues to provide opportunities to Victorians by offering them the best possible education and training, so that people have the skills to secure stable employment and enjoy the dignity of work.

The area of public policy that he is most passionate about is education. Nick believes that education is transformative and can shape people's lives. He wants teachers to be supported by government to provide the best possible education to our next generation.
