Local Government Rank to Grade Guide

Local councils in NSW employ approximately 45,000 full-time employees across a wide range of roles.  Local Government NSW’s Capability Framework  sets out the essential knowledge, skills and abilities needed to work effectively in local government.

The guide aligns council roles to military ranks.  Use this guide as a starting point and remember to consider all your skills in the military and since as well as your work experience when considering a new career.
