Founded as a sister site to jobsgopublic.com in 2003, LGJobs.com was developed to give something back to the public sector providing a platform through which vacancies could be advertised free of charge.
All councils in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are eligible to use the free job listing service.
The free service is only available to councils and users require a valid local government email address to access the self-service upload facility.
This service is open to organisations posting direct listings only. Listings must direct applicants to where they can apply for the role without redirecting to a third party.
jobsgopublic.com subscribers have already been benefitting from free job postings on LG Jobs and will continue to do so. Local Government vacancies placed on the Jobsgopublic website will continue to be automatically fed into the LG Jobs website without the need for additional effort or cost.
Yes! All nominated council users can access the free of charge services.
For added value there are additional chargeable services available. To find out more about these services please contact a member of the sale team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call them on 0207 427 8278
There are 5 free user accounts for every authority. Larger councils will generate higher posting volumes, requiring additional support and technical requirements. To fairly reflect these associated costs, a small charge of £500 will be made for additional user licences beyond the introductory 5 free user accounts.
Please let Local Government Improvement & Development know if any allocated users leave your organisation and their individual account will be deleted.
The free service will continue to be funded by the Local Government Improvement & Development, providing that regular supplier audits confirm the above policies are being followed. Misuse will result in accounts being cancelled and access rights revoked.
