New local government careers website launched

SOLGM MEDIA RELEASE: Monday 10 November 2014

New local government careers website launched

Thanks to the New Zealand Society of Local Government Managers (SOLGM) job seekers around the country now have access to a new online tool which allows them to explore the many career opportunities available within local government.

The website allows users to easily source information about the various roles which are available in the sector – and with an integrated job vacancy board built into the site, job seekers can also immediately apply for jobs listed on the site.
The LGCareers site has also been designed to highlight the positive impacts roles within local government have on their communities.

“Often people don’t realise how varied and rewarding working in local government can be.” says SOLGM Chief Executive Karen Thomas. “When developing this website we set out to showcase the range of careers available to job seekers as well as the satisfaction people realise when working in and for their community.”

Alongside the ability to apply for roles from within the website LGCareers also provides information on the various career enhancement options available to local government staff, including overseas management exchanges, training opportunities and scholarships for courses that are aimed at improving the knowledge and skills of staff across local government.

SOLGM is a national member organisation which supports managers in local government and is committed to promoting and encouraging professional excellence in all areas of the sector. The LGCareers website is one of the services SOLGM provides to ensure this vision is achieved.
