Councils are multi-million dollar operations with substantial responsibilities to the communities they serve. LGNZ believes local government staff and elected members should run councils they are entrusted to operate with the governance skills, financial knowledge and risk management expertise of leading professionals.
EquiP works directly with council staff, mayors and elected members to provide customised guidance and tools to drive better efficiency of action and effect throughout local government activities.
EquiP provides Executive Recruitment Services dedicated to working with mayors, chairs, councils and employment committees. The complete end-to-end employment search and selection service is backed by LGNZ’s extensive local government experience and intimate knowledge of the sector.
The EquiP Executive Performance Programme is designed to improve executive performance by providing chief executives and senior management with the practical and guidance tools necessary to confidently deliver effective results for New Zealand communities.
We released an audit and risk guide and service to assist councils in managing risk and delivering financial excellence. For more information, click here.
As part of our Finance and Governance Excellence Initiative, we have partnered with the Institute of Directors (IoD) to deliver Professional Development courses, tailored to local authorities, to give grounding in core governance, leadership and strategic skills.
EquiP is a limited partnership, wholly owned by LGNZ, that operates as a commercially sustainable venture for the benefit of members to up-skill the sector through a collaborative knowledge sharing approach.
