How To Get A Job In Local Government With The NGDP – regardless of your degree!
December 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Lauren Cunningham graduated from the University of Lincoln in September 2017 and is currently on the National Graduate Development Programme (NGDP) at Stevenage Borough Council. The Local Government Association facilitates this scheme up and down the country at a number of local councils and recruitment for the next intake in September 2018 has started now.
Social care, housing, education and the environment are just a fraction of the services local councils are constantly working to improve. This scheme looks for the next generation of managers from any degree discipline to lead critical projects and services that have tangible, everyday outcomes for people's lives – and Lauren thinks that Lincoln students are perfect for this! Lauren is running a session exclusive to the University of Lincoln and will provide students with more information about the NGDP, tips about each stage of the application process, and most importantly, offer students the chance to have an honest discussion about the world of work after university.
This session will be beneficial not only to those that are sure local government is the career path for them, but also those that are exploring a variety of graduate schemes and want to hear from somebody that has been there and done that!’
