Full time

Wakefield is an ambitious and creative place where anything can happen. With a key City in West Yorkshire surrounded by towns and villages in a rural setting, Wakefield is a district at the heart of the UK boasting great infrastructure and connectivity. Businesses thrive here and visitors enjoy iconic attractions such as Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The internationally renowned Production Park and campus, home to the production of live experiences, is a jewel in the crown of our creative industries hub. We have many significant regeneration projects to deliver as well as realising our sustainability ambitions and commitment to tackling the climate emergency.

We’re focussed upon making a positive difference to residents’ lives. That’s why we need a new Corporate Director who’ll make our district even better. You’ll drive our regeneration and economic growth agenda, play a key corporate leadership role in the Council, champion our residents, and build and sustain relationships with a broad range of partners, all against the backdrop of the West Yorkshire devolution deal.
