Dear candidate,

I am pleased you have taken an interest in working at Trafford Council.

We are seeking only the very best candidates for five key roles which will help shape and deliver our ambitious vision.  The Corporate Director role will be part of our strong and visionary senior leadership team, and the other four posts are equally key to our future success.  

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. 

Trafford is a prosperous and sought-after place to live with excellent parks and green spaces and thriving town centres, spearheaded by a popular and lively modern market hall in Altrincham, and major cultural and leisure destinations including a dedicated arts centre, theatre and the Intu Trafford Centre – one of the UK’s largest shopping destinations.

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.  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 already have a good story to tell.  We now need to grasp the wider opportunities available to us and make strides on the commercial and investment landscape.   We have a lot of valuable assets and opportunities and need the right people to lead and drive our bold and ambitious vision.

Further information about the roles we are recruiting to is available via the roles tab on this site along with the Job descriptions.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Theresa Grant

Chief Executive
