Progress your Career at Council

Careers at Council is a website developed by the Local Government Associations to attract managers, professionals, specialist employees including tradespeople, graduates and school leavers to a career in local government. With skills shortages reported by 80% of councils in NSW, Careers at Council is a single hub of information about jobs, career stories, qualification requirements and links to councils nationally.

Careers at Council is now recognised by the Commonwealth Government as local government’s employment portal, with a presence on a large number of sites for job seekers, careers advisors and students.

Job seekers can search for new employment opportunities via an interactive map or keyword search or follow Careers at Council on LinkedIn.

IPWEA NSW and ACT members interested in sharing their career story on Careers at Council are encouraged to contact Jennifer James at Local Government NSW.
