Trafford Council – Welcome


Thank you for your interest in this exciting opportunity in Trafford. With thriving modern market towns, high educational attainment with some of the best results in the country, incredible investment opportunities and major development plans, it’s no surprise Trafford is the place to invest, work, live and visit.

We are a key asset to the region with a place at the top table of the Northern Powerhouse – essential to Greater Manchester’s growth plans – contributing over £9.6bn to the Greater Manchester economy.  We have significant input into devolution in the region, working with an elected Mayor. There are 23,000 homes to be built by 2031 and 1.12m square metres of new employment space. We are also at the heart of the commuter belt with Manchester Airport, Manchester Piccadilly train station and major UK motorway networks on our doorstep. We are home to internationally renowned football and cricket clubs and 13,000 businesses. We are working with Lancaster University, Trafford college and other sector partners in establishing UA92.

We are a high performing, award winning Council, committed to excellence in service provision, inward investment and continual improvement. We are keen to maximize the opportunities to work with partners to generate income, deliver efficiencies and create an environment for sustainable services in a difficult financial environment.

We are looking for a talented, committed and corporate HR Director with a track record of delivering high quality support services to complement our highly committed teams. We already have a good story to tell.  Driven by high calibre people, a productive and supportive culture, we now need to make the most of our wide-ranging opportunities to deliver our bold and ambitious vision.
