Wigan Council is offering an excellent opportunity for a group of Plus Programme students who are interested in careers in local government to visit their headquarters and gain an insight into all of the different roles involved in the running of the council. This will be a fantastic introduction into the workings of councils and a great chance for you to think about if a career in local government might be right for you!

The day will include a mix of talks and workshops from different departments to give you a wide overview of what life there as a graduate could be like.
