Welcome message from Jacqui Gedman

Kirklees is firmly focused on the future - we're on an ambitious journey and looking for talented, experienced professionals to join our senior leadership team.

Our vision is to create a district with a strong, sustainable economy that offers a great quality of life to its residents - leading to thriving communities, growing businesses, high prosperity and low inequality where people enjoy better health throughout their lives. In order to achieve this, a radical reform of how the council and partners support our communities to thrive is gathering pace in line with our New Council approach.

We are seeking experienced leaders who can support our vision and priorities by inspiring others against a rapidly changing backdrop. On this microsite you will find out further information about the opportunities at Kirklees.

If your values and ambition resonate with ours, and want to join us on our journey of improvement, then we look forward to receiving your application.
