Council or Local Government is the third tier of Government within Australia and is responsible for such local community services as town planning, local roads, parks, rubbish collection, library services and much more. Vacancies within Local Councils range from Accountants and Administration roles to Landscapers and Librarians from entry level through to senior executive roles. The benefits of working for your local council, apart from being able to make a change, is seeing the change you are making to your local community through your daily working and personal life. Some of the benefits to a career within your local government include generous leave entitlements for a variety of life events and circumstances, pension schemes, higher superannuation contributions and positive work-life balance. One of the main benefits that many people fail to recognise is contributing towards making a difference to your local community and seeing the changes you are making within the community you reside such as parks, roads, signage, town planning and more.
