Make it Calderdale Council

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many of us to reconsider what we want from life. Also, how we can make things better.

  • With a career move to Calderdale Council, you will find a meaningful way to contribute. You will also make a real difference to others.
  • With over 600 services, we offer a wide variety of roles. So, you can use your skills and experience to help others and make Calderdale a better place for everyone.

From the moment you leave the house, you come across vital council services. Local government is critical in so many areas of our lives:

  • from the people who maintain your roads;
  • to those who protect vulnerable people and your favourite areas of countryside.
"You do feel like you are contributing to something. More than just doing a job and sitting at a desk from 9 to 5. It is helping people who maybe cannot get help anywhere else. To be a part of that makes you feel happy. Like you have found a job where you can make a difference to some people's lives. Even if it is just a very small difference."
- Tom Kearns, Apprentice Environmental Health Officer.
