Trafford: a great place, a great destination and first for investment

Trafford is a thriving, prosperous and culturally vibrant borough at the heart of the Manchester City Region with strong and established business base, as well as internationally renowned cultural and sporting attractions. Trafford Council has a very clear agenda to grow the economy of the borough through increasing its business, employment and residential base.

Trafford’s town centres are diverse and represent an exciting and challenging opportunity for growth. We need to ensure that they are vibrant and attractive places for residents, businesses and visitors. They must be able to provide the right ‘offer’ as high quality retail, cultural and residential locations, be sustainable, and act as a catalyst for growth.

We are looking for a Town Centres Officer to join the town centres team to lead on, and support, a range of initiatives to stimulate regeneration, development and investment. You will work on both operational and strategic initiatives and gain invaluable career experience.

For this post, we are looking for dynamic and motivated candidates who want to make a real difference on the ground. If you have what we’re looking for then we want to hear from you. You will need to demonstrate that you have relevant experience, in either the public or private sectors, which can deliver real change on the ground and meet the Council’s Corporate Priorities. You will need to demonstrate innovative approaches to transforming town centres, strong communication skills to achieve results and that you are able to maintain strong, effective relationships with the private, public and third sectors.
