Would you like to help local government explore and develop current policy?

We are looking for additional associates to write occasional briefings for us on a variety of subjects:

  • local government finance with particular knowledge of Scottish local government finance
  • health and social care
  • children’s social care
  • environmental health
  • planning
  • technology and data issues
  • organisational development and human resources
  • international local government

Associates should have an understanding of how local government works and, if relevant, experience of working in a council, combined authority or similar. They also need excellent writing skills and the ability to work to deadlines.

LGIU has offices in England, Scotland and Ireland, and delivers a service in Australia with a partnership organisation. We are increasingly working across the four countries.

If you have any questions please email Janet Sillett, Head of Briefings [email protected]. We will be happy to provide some sample briefings and further information about the rates paid for briefings.

Writers work for us on a freelance basis as associates.

To apply please send a CV and covering letter to [email protected]

The deadline for applications is 15 October 2020.
