CouncilJobs listings across both Australia and New Zealand have never been higher. And since the pandemic councils everywhere re-invented themselves as more flexible, responsive organisations. 

In other words, there are massive opportunities in the sector, for new entrants and for people looking to move up and take on more responsibility. This webinar series aims to help people interested in the sector learn more about it, develop an understanding, and seize the opportunity. 

Sector-wide Skills shortage

At the core of all Council effort is building & maintaining local infrastructure, which takes many skillsets, foremost of which is Engineering, to design, plan & manage project delivery. To learn more about the skillshortage in council you can read the CouncilJobs Resonate21 Study published in May 2021, in conjunction with Blackadder Associates & Leonards Advertising

Webinars are the solution

CouncilJobs believes that job seekers need to be better informed about all the opportunities for successful careers in the council sector. CouncilJobs Careers Webinars facilitate a series of free discussions for prospective & existing employees in the sector which aim to encourage more good people to apply for the great opportunities in Councils. CouncilJobs Careers Webinars will be conducted monthly & available to view free online here anytime afterwards. 

Audience members will be able to watch the panel discussion & submit questions &/or discussion suggestions via a chat feature.
