LGRC’s mission is to provide flexible resources and additional skilled capacity to Local Councils. We now also support the sector by providing a free service for Town, Parish and Community Councils to advertise vacancies for their permanent, full time or part time staff. LGRC’s website is viewed on a regular basis by experienced and qualified Local Council practitioners and is a recruitment hub for Councils and potential staff.
Our consultancy services support both council staff and councillors in:
- Understanding community needs in depth by means of community surveys
- Developing strategies which meet community needs cost-effectively
- Making key decisions concerning community services and the use of council budgets
- Undertaking key activities such as planning, budgeting, financial appraisals, tender management, innovative service delivery design, and recruitment of key staff
- Reviewing staffing structures, defining roles, and developing key skills
- Ensuring best practice processes, IT systems and procedures are in place to enable a council to fulfil its obligations effectively while minimising risk
Our services are practical and cost-effective, whilst at the same time rigorous and based on best practice.
