LGA to promote local government careers with Plotr deal

To help councils recruit the best young talent, the Local Government Association (LGA) has signed up to Plotr, a government-supported, education-led careers website.

The LGA will fund the creation of a Local Government World platform within the website that will showcase the range of careers and opportunities that councils have to offer.

Individual councils will then be able to create their own employer profiles, which will provide young people – mainly the 14-19 age group – with more localised information and details of job opportunities within councils.

Cllr David Sparks, LGA chair and a former careers advisor, said: “Making choices about their career and the world of work is one of the biggest decisions that young people have to make but to do that effectively and reach their full potential, they need the right information.

“At the same time, the fundamental changes and challenges that councils are dealing with on a daily basis mean they offer incredibly rewarding and diverse careers and it is important young people think about local government as a fantastic career choice.”
