Capture your key candidates with LGJobs
Place your local government job vacancy in front of the right people - LGJobs is New Zealand’s only jobs vacancy website dedicated to local government.
The key benefits of advertising with LGJobs
As LGJobs is administered by the New Zealand Society of Local Government Managers (SOLGM) you can be sure that the site is dedicated to ensuring the sector has the best possible staff. By directly advertising to those in the sector - and job seekers interested in joining the sector, there is no doubt LGJobs will deliver the right candidates to you and your clients.
Extend your reach with our packages
We offer add-on packages, including through our partnership with Trade Me Jobs, which allows you to seamlessly post your entire advertisement to Trade Me Jobs and/or distribute to our database of over 8,000 local government staff, councilors and other interested parties via our LGConnect discussion groups and twice weekly LGNewsBulletin e-newsletter.
With individual staff login rights you are in control
Within each account we are able to create individual login accounts for different staff members across your organisation, meaning that you are able to keep a record of which staff members are posting vacancies. We are more than happy to set up as many staff users with specific rights as you require.
Our staff are available to demonstrate the website in a live environment – either via a live webinar on your computer or an in-house session to showcase the product. Please feel free to contact us for more information about these options.
At SOLGM we pride ourselves on providing a high level of support to our advertisers and as such we are very happy to answer any queries around LGJobs.co.nz during business hours – Monday to Friday 8am – 5pm.
If you have an urgent request we suggest you phone rather than email so we are able to talk through the situation with you. We also offer on screen live video training sessions where we demonstrate the system in a live environment and can talk through the process with you and/or your staff. This support is offered free of charge.
Restrictions to LGJobs.co.nz advertising
As LGJobs.co.nz serves the local government sector exclusively we do not allow advertisements to be placed for roles which are not relevant to the sector.
Any role which is based within a council or a council owned organisation is permitted. However if you are advertising a role which is a joint venture between councils and outside and/or central government agencies we do ask that you contact us to discuss the details of the role so we are able to ascertain whether or not the role meets our terms.
