What matters to you in your local area? Perhaps you're already involved in your local community and want to take next step - or maybe you're looking for a new, worthwhile and rewarding venture.
Isle of Wight Council can only be as effective, relevant and vibrant as the people elected to run it. The council needs councillors who are capable, enthused and engaged, with a commitment to local people and a passion for change.
Want to find out more? We're holding an information day which will have a particular focus on women in leadership. Anyone who is interested in finding out more about the role of the councillor is welcome to attend. You can find out more from the Chief Executive and elected members about the services the council provides and what steps you can take to stand for election.
The agenda will include:
- Hearing from the Chief Executive, Leader of the Council and the main political groups
- A speaker on women in Leadership
- The role and future of Isle of Wight Council
- Question time with experienced councillors
- Opportunity to meet with political groups in private
There will be 2 sessions, one in the morning and one early evening. Please RSVP to let us know how many to cater for.
