Working smarter to serve local communities

Local councils provide vital services to their communities. Infrastructure, waste, transport, education, healthcare, the environment and community engagement all contribute to enhancing quality of life for local residents.

And yet budgets get tighter year-on-year. Local government is under increasing pressure to implement a cost-effective approach to service delivery. This is where new technologies come into play. Digital transformation of services empowers local authorities to work quicker, smarter, delivering more for less.

Where does MLC come in?

Local government is an ever-changing, rapidly developing landscape. And we’re excited to be a part of it.

We are an award-winning recruitment agency. But, most importantly, we are ambitious. We want to be the most credible, market-leading provider of interim and permanent IT professionals to Local Government clients in the UK.

Senior appointments
