...this is Scottish Local Government at its best!
A major national award for the local authority recruitment website myjobscotland.
At a time when the public sector in general, and local government in particular, are under intense financial pressure and having to make hard choices on spending decisions, it's nice to be able to report on a real soaraway success story, involving ground breaking innovation, dedication and commitment to succeed and millions of pounds of savings for the public purse which are being redirected into essential services such as carers, schools and road repairs.
That's precisely what myjobscotland has achieved. At the Guildhall in London, the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) was awarded the prestigious UK Public Sector Digital Award, beating off stiff competition from leading public sector competitors such as the NHS, UK Cabinet Office and Welsh Government.
