Job Details

About us 

We are a politically led, cross-party organisation that works on behalf of councils to ensure local government has a strong, credible voice with national government. We aim to influence and set the political agenda on the issues that matter to councils, so they are able to deliver local solutions to national problems.

The role

Councils across the country have declared a climate emergency and are very busy creating and implementing their climate action plans. An Adviser is required to work on the Climate Change Support Programme within the LGA’s Productivity Team. Alongside and in addition to the climate work, they may also be required to work on other programmes in the Productivity Team.

The LGA’s Productivity Programme is an integrated portfolio of projects designed to help local authorities individually and collectively to make best use of resources and build capability and capacity during a period of changing public services. You can find out more about the LGA Sector Support Offer.

The requirements

You will have knowledge and experience of working in or for local government and the ability to engage effectively with councils, central government, wider partners and suppliers at different levels. An ability to communicate with key stakeholders, including at a senior level, is crucial.

The role is to join our team working on the Climate Change Sector Support Programme. The Programme helps councils and residents to reach their local carbon reduction and adaptation targets. The work also involves helping to raise the profile of climate change amongst senior managers and elected members in councils.

Your core responsibilities will be to help us devise and implement programmes of support for councils to enable them to improve services. You will also capture and mainstream existing good practice to enable other councils to apply this to their work. This involves regular communication with councils and other partners, as well as keeping pace with and managing different parts of a fast paced programme.

As a Disability Confident Leader the LGA values diversity and encourages applications from all sections of the community
