There are opportunities in the service of the Wellington City Council for young graduates to establish themselves and advance on merit.
In some Departments access to the senior positions is through years of acceptance of professional or technical responsibility. Positions are increasingly being developed in which the discipline of reading for a degree makes a notable contribution to advancement. The major work of some Departments, such as the Town Clerk's Department and the City Treasury, is concerned almost entirely with administration, without technical responsibilities of any other kind. Such degrees as those of law, commerce and arts aredistinct recommendations when positions become vacant, and tend to ensure advancement in minimum time to satisfactory senior positions.
The undertaking of the Wellington City Council is a very big and diversified organisation by any measure: its standards of service arehigh and the Council is always concerned to improve the calibre of its officers. The Council has expert professional members in many fields, and during the present period of national shortage of skilled labour in most occupations there are opportunities to secure positions in its service. These are permanent positions, professionally graded and rewarded, carrying superannuation rights and opportunities for promotion, and are comparable in every way with those in the Public Service.
