LGMA Queensland is pleased to launch an online Local Government Mentoring Programme!

Created to provide professional development and career advancement, this programme is specifically designed for officers within local government who are aspiring to further their careers within the sector.


Participants are matched with a mentor who will meet with them monthly to discuss ways to develop their career.  They will also undertake professional development through the online delivery of webinars, articles, video clips and discussions.  These are designed to enhance participants’ professional development and assist in identifying career aspirations.

  • Develop self awareness and resilience
  • Build networks: both internally and externally to council
  • Create career development opportunities
  • Engage with senior leaders
