Recruiting the next generation of local government executives – What are you really looking for and where do you find them?

Councils often talk about the necessary changes in culture and mind-set which will allow local authorities to face an exceptionally challenging environment. There’s a new generation of managers and innovators who are well equipped to work flexibility in challenging financial situations, but are they put off from pursuing a career in public service by local government’s approach to recruitment?

Are your recruitment processes successful in attracting the type of high achieving innovators this environment requires in a cost effective manner? If not, what practical steps could be employed to ensure this happens? This discussion will allow participants to share insights on what works. The guest speaker for the lunch will be:

Sarah Messenger, Head of Workforce, LGA
