LGMS assists councils to ensure business continuity where a vacancy in the position of the general manager occurs. Current legislation allows a temporary appointment of a general manager for up to a 12 month period and other senior management and specialist positions for an ongoing period.

LGMS has a network of highly experienced former general managers and senior staff who are available for temporary assignments with councils requiring their services. The benefits of engaging one of our Locums are:

  • Locums are fully equipped to ‘hit the ground running’
  • Disruptions to councils’ operations are minimised
  • Councils have the flexibility to time the recruitment of the new General Manager to suit their business needs and demands
  • Senior staff levels are not disrupted which provides business continuity
  • Councils can enjoy a fresh set of eyes on their operations and benefit from the experience that our Locums have gained over many years on the job.
