The Aspiring Leaders Mentoring Programme is a platform where ambitious local government professionals in the early stages of their careers can gain professional development, top level local government networking opportunities and insights into career opportunities. 



Aspiring Leaders will be paired with an experienced local government professional to support their professional development and career goals. Through regular meetings the Aspiring Leader will be able to objectively sound board ideas or concerns, further develop their networks and advance programme related tasks. The Aspiring Leader will also have access to content experts, discussing hot topics affecting local government, ensuring the subject matter is relevant and innovative. 


Our New Approach


With one metropolitan destination (Sydney) and one roaming regional destination (North West NSW) to choose from, the Aspiring Leaders Mentoring Programme aims to be accessible, engaging and inspirational. 

Cross-council diversity brings together aspiring local government professionals to learn from each other by sharing knowledge, expertise and skills. It will enable you to gain new perspective and insights into the many rewarding career and leadership opportunities in local government, and develop an extensive professional network.
