Living in Wrexham
Wrexham has a lot going for it. We have some amazing country parks (one of which contains our stunning World Heritage Site – Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal) , a rich and proud history, and some of the most honest and hardworking people you could wish to meet.
We’ve got Tŷ Pawb, our cultural community resource, which brings together arts and markets within the same footprint.
We also have a university, one of the best further education colleges in the UK, and we’re home to some of Britain’s most successful businesses.
With the Hollywood investment in Wrexham AFC, our local football club, courtesy of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, it’s a really exciting time for Wrexham.
And not only are we handily positioned to cities like Chester, Liverpool and Manchester, but we’re also only a stones-throw from some of the UK’s most beautiful beaches as well.
Don’t believe what you read. Working in the public sector can be really rewarding…and it definitely isn’t boring. Plus you’ll get access to a good pension scheme, generous leave allowance, flexible working (great for balancing work and home life) and other employee benefits.
