Living in Wrexham

For some a career with us will mean moving from your current town/city, but don’t worry – 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, and we’re home to some of Britain’s most successful businesses.

Plus, 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.

But that’s enough for now, register for the careers fair and we can tell you more about working at Wrexham Council there.
