When planning your career you need to take a serious look at working in local government. It offers a broad range of careers in most mainstream areas such as IT, human resource, architecture, engineering, accountancy, law, etc. as well as more specialist areas such as education and social services.
Councils are often the biggest employer in the area and employ thousands of people so the opportunity to advance your career with one employer is far greater.
