To identify current and emerging skills needs of Local Government and to provide an analysis of state/territory and national skills profiles.

The National Local Government Workforce Development Group (LGWDG) has commissioned this survey. The survey is the first step in the development of a National Local Government Skills Plan. This LGWDG comprises representatives from each state and territory Local Government Association and provides advice on workforce matters to the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA).

This project will provide evidence to support effective advocacy at both state and federal levels in regards to the sector’s current and future workforce capacity matters.

The survey is targeted at Human Resource Managers or the officer best positioned within the council to provide both the objective and subjective data relating to that council. It will take approximately 25 minutes to complete once you have sourced relevant data. All parties who complete the survey will be provided access to the final report.

Results of this survey will be aggregated. Results from individual Councils will not be published or made available to any party other than those responsible for collation. If you are uncomfortable answering any of the questions just leave them blank.

Please complete your survey by January 12, 2018
