Now in its eleventh year, the Local Government Challenge seeks out the best and brightest local government officers to compete in a series of real-life challenges around the country.
Sitting within the Local Government Association’s sector-led improvement offer, the LG Challenge serves to develop the future generation of local government leaders.
Spanning over a six month period, 10 budding contestants will tackle five real-life challenges in councils across the country. The challenges give contestants a unique experience which develop and hone their leadership and political management skills, business acumen and communication techniques whilst offering invaluable media experience – shaping contestants into leaders through tasks which aim to deliver the best services for the local community.
With the opportunity to be awarded the prestigious £10,000 Bruce-Lockhart scholarship, the winner will have a unique opportunity to translate their very own ideas into a reality, make a long lasting impact in their area, as well as give their CV a substantial edge.
Local government officers of all levels are welcome to apply.
