Highlighting managerial leadership

Our range of officer development opportunities.

The next generation of local government managers will be leading local authorities through unprecedented times. Councils have a vital role play in building civil society through:

  • making tough decisions
  • devolving power to local people
  • promoting fairness and tackling inequality.

As the role of councils is rapidly changing, so are the roles of our officers, managers and chief executives. To support the leadership capacity of these professionals, now and in the future, our offer focuses particularly on ensuring that:

  • the brightest and best graduates are encouraged and supported into the sector
  • those leading our local authorities are offered joint political and managerial development opportunities which stretch their knowledge and capability to effectively lead across place, together.
