Local Government Week (30 July – 5 August), is the perfect excuse to celebrate our committed staff and the incredible things they do in our community every day.

When many people think of local government, they think of our garbage collection services and local roads and footpaths. But the modern Council is so much more.

While we do pick up the rubbish and manage over 850kms of roads, we also run the Manly Art Gallery and Museum, two aquatic centres and Glen Street Theatre.

We manage over 120 sportsfields, 220 playgrounds and a growing number of skate parks. Our libraries attract over a million visits a year; we provide childcare for over 4,000 local kids and operate 41 community centres.

We have teams who look after our beautiful bushland and waterways, scientists who manage floods and storm water, and staff who patrol and clean our 21 beaches and 15 ocean rockpools.

Our incredible events attract hundreds of thousands of people to our area while supporting our local businesses.

And all to ensure the Northern Beaches is an extraordinary place to live, work and invest.

We want the best people to work for us and to make sure that happens we provide the best of working environments.

With more than 40 careers to choose from, there are so many employment opportunities for our local residents. Develop your career with people passionate about making a difference in our community.
