Working for us
At the Local Government Ombudsman we believe that our success depends on the commitment, integrity and skills of our staff and offer a rewarding environment for those committed to working in support of the public.
We provide a service for people from all backgrounds and all parts of the community and we strive to ensure that those we employ value and reflect this diversity. We will provide equality of opportunity and will not permit discrimination on grounds of colour, race, nationality, national or ethnic origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy and maternity leave, religion or belief, or trade union membership.
The depth to which complaints are investigated varies according to the individual complaint. Some complaints are the subject of an early decision to end the LGO's involvement, for example, where the matter is not one that the law allows us to investigate. Others are the subject of written enquiries of the body concerned and perhaps a meeting with the complainant before the LGO's involvement is ended, for example, because no or insufficient evidence of fault has been found or because the body complained of offers to settle the complaint during the course of the investigation.
We employ around 175 staff in offices in Coventry, London, and York.
