The Local Government Association Careers Guide

The Workforce Team at the LGA recently launched two major initiatives to help councils recruit the best young people.

The first is our booklet ‘Working in Local Government', launched in December 2014, which describes the important work that councils do within the places that young people live, work, learn, shop, socialise and exercise. It highlights the huge variety of interesting and meaningful careers that councils have to offer young people.
 
Since its launch the LGA has received very positive feedback from councils, schools and career advisers all of whom believe the guide is an important contribution to the range of information young people need when thinking about their futures. Plotr complements this careers guide.
