What is The Local Government Association responsible for?
The Local Government Association (or LGA for short!) in their own words “are the national voice of local government, working with councils to support, promote and improve local government”.
The organisation is a politically-led, cross-party organisation that ensures local government has a strong, credible voice with national government.
The LGA is a membership organisation with approximately 400 local authorities as members.
When did the Local Government Association start to use Jobtrain to hire?
In 2012 following a successful tender process, The Local Government Association chose Jobtrain as their preferred provider of applicant tracking software.
"This will be the third year that we have worked with Jobtrain in delivering the application process for the National Graduate Development Programme (NGDP).
We really enjoy working with the Jobtrain team; the flexibility their system offers has allowed us to develop and refine the application process over the years in a move towards a seamless candidate experience."
