The 'Take a closer look at a career in local government' campaign


In April 2016 SOLGM launched this campaign at our annual Gala Dinner with the first screening of the campaign's video. In 2018 the video was updated, you can view the video in the LGCareers' website here.

The video, with supporting marketing collateral, is available to all councils that subscribe to SOLGM's Recruitment and Retention initiative. Both the video and the flyers can be branded to include council's own logo and contact details. For councils that aren't able to add these elements to the video we can organise that through our production company - with SOLGM covering the cost (some conditions apply).

Pull-up banners are also available to loan for career days.

Careers Expos

From time to time SOLGM will also take a booth space at careers expos to promote the LGCareer's initiative. For more information on our promotions at Careers Expos click here

Interested councils should email: to find out more including having your own career's collateral in our booth or having a council rep attend.
