Local Government Rank to Grade Guide

The Local Government Rank to Grade Guide (LGR2G) was developed by the VEP in partnership with the Office of Local Government, LGNSW and the United Services Union to help hiring managers and veterans understand how Australian Defence Force skills and experience align with public sector jobs.

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 outlines the requirements of council roles and how veterans’ military experience can fulfil these needs at all employment levels.

Local government opportunities are often advertised on council websites, local newspapers, or on job search engines like seeklgassist and Careers at Council. Use this guide to compare your skills and experience with a job’s criteria.

These local councils have pledged their support to veterans employment.
