The vital work of Fingal County Council employees and the role they will play in Fingal’s social and economic recovery is being highlighted on ‘Your Council Day’ tomorrow, Thursday July 1.
Across social media, #YourCouncilDay will showcase the work of our committed and passionate council workers who make a difference to the lives of the people in their community.
Fingal County Council, along with other local authorities, will provide a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the work of its many departments.
Updates will be shared on social media throughout the day using the hashtag #YourCouncilDay / #DoLásaChomhairle.
Thursday July 1 also sees the launch of a new website called localgovernmentjobs.ie which will be the only place jobhunters can search for all jobs in the local government sector across the country.
It will be a central hub of information about local authority careers, recruitment process and benefits.
“We work closely with the Chief Executive and her staff and interact with them at Council, Area Committee and Strategic Policy Committee meetings as well as making direct representations.
Local Government is a very important part of our democracy here in Ireland and it is important that citizens are aware of the role of their local council and their local councillors and the things we do”, says Mayor of Fingal Cllr Séana Ó Rodaigh.
Chief Executive of Fingal County Council AnnMarie Farrelly is happy to showcase the work of Fingal County Council staff.
“We are going to give you an insight into some of the 380 different services we provide to communities all over Fingal and show how we are working to make Fingal the best place to live, work, visit and do business.
I’ve worked in local government all my career and was able to climb through the ranks from Clerical Officer to Chief Executive while working in a variety of areas such as Housing, Planning, Strategic Infrastructure, Finance and Operations.
I have no hesitation in recommending Local Government as a career and you’ll find, that no matter what your interests are, there is a matching job here in Fingal.”
Future Fingal County Council jobs will be advertised on the new localgovernmentjobs.ie website.
The site provides practical advice about applying for local authority jobs and offers information about all the benefits that come with working for a local authority such as a great working environment, commitment to lifelong learning, great career opportunities, work-life balance options and a commitment to equality of opportunity.
