Over 1,500 people have already subscribed to the service since it was launched last week. Five initial topics have been chosen based on the most frequently visited pages on the website:
Jobs (council wide) – receive the latest vacancies by email twice a week
Trading Standards – service updates
Normanby Hall – newsletters, events and promotions
20-21 Visual Arts Centre – newsletters, events and promotions
North Lincolnshire Museum – newsletters, events and promotions
To sign up to receive email updates on any of the topics, you can visit the email subscription service page or click the red envelope at the top of the page.
Last year, 30 per cent of visits to the website were for council jobs. With the new email service, subscribers to job updates will receive an email twice a week with a round-up of the latest vacancies, reducing the need to check the website.
Email updates for more council topics will be launched over the coming months.
Councillor Richard Hannigan, cabinet member for Policy and Finance, said: “The new email subscription service will help keep people up to date without having to visit our website. With so many people visiting the council website for our latest job vacancies, subscribing to job updates ensures that they will not miss out on any job opportunities.
“People can also sign up to updates from Normanby Hall, 20-21 and North Lincolnshire Museum to find out about the fantastic events happening across these venues. We are looking at adding even more topics to the email subscription service to provide the latest information to the residents of North Lincolnshire.”
