As we look ahead towards the future, we now stand ready to play an equal part with Government to support an inclusive economic recovery – helping young people to ensure that the next generation doesn’t become a lost ‘pandemic generation’ with scars for years to come.
COVID-19 has shown there is an urgent need for government to ensure that councils and local partners have the necessary funding to enable timely and effective home adaptations for older and disabled people, to help ensure their safety, wellbeing and independence during and beyond the pandemic.
ICT is one of four Return to Work programmes developed by the Local Government Association (LGA) and the Government Equalities Office (GEO). The programme is designed to help experienced ICT professionals return to work after a career break and join local government.
Designed to support councils with the recruitment of planners, this free programme will run a national recruitment drive on your authority’s behalf and give you the chance to connect with experienced professionals who are eager to join local government.
