Local government employs a diverse array of people in a large number of different jobs. For many of these councils actively seek graduates with degrees in subjects as varied as law, engineering, planning, healthcare, ecology, surveying, IT, communications, HR and accounting.

As well as recruiting graduates into specific jobs, many councils have their own graduate programmes. So, whether you have a vocational degree and a desire to contribute in a specific arena, or are undecided in how best to use your degree, local government and the public sector could be just the place to start!
