Competing teams are expected to meet with potential stakeholders and partners such as the regional lga/employers, fire, police, CCG, central govt and charities. As part of the simulation, we will be arranging real life meetings for the teams and we need additional people with local government experience and know how to fill these roles and make the challenge as realistic as possible.

We need:

  • Leaders to guide and advise competing teams (Chief Executives and Elected Members)
  • Media representatives to put teams through their paces at a press conference (Senior managers/professionals from a comms/media background)
  • Partners to meet with teams as requested (Senior Managers/professionals, with a range of experience and knowledge of local government and/or the wider public sector)

You will need to be:

  • Able to think on your feet
  • Able to work in a fast paced environment
  • Up for anything

In return you will get:

  • The opportunity to be part of an extraordinary (and highly enjoyable) event
  • The chance to test and hone your interpersonal, communication and time management skills (to name but a few!)
  • To work with a wide range of colleagues from across our region
  • A free lunch, an invite to the Evening Awards Ceremony and Dinner!
