Welcome to Trafford Council

Trafford, the place to live, work, learn and relax.  And develop your career.

Close to Manchester, the regional centre, Trafford has excellent road and public transport links, busy traditional town centres, exceptional shopping centres (including the nationally recognised Trafford Centre), international football and cricket venues (the two 'Old Traffords' - Lancashire County Cricket Club and Manchester United) and fine countryside within its boundaries.

It is also home to the award winning Imperial War Museum North, voted “Best Building in Britain” by the British Construction Industry, while the Sale Waterside development is another nationally recognised achievement, providing local people with easy access to Council Services.

There is the widest possible range of housing in everything from urban locations, through leafy suburbs to rural settings.  The area is located south of the city centre and consists of Stretford, Sale and Altrincham together with the former urban districts of Bowdon, Hale and Urmston and the parishes of Carrington, Warburton, Dunham Massey and Partington.

Trafford has a significant track record in educational attainment, with outstanding examination results in some of the region's best schools.

Our people are at the heart of achieving Trafford's objectives and in return we offer great opportunities for career development to our employees.

Success always depends on the expertise of the people who do the work and we recognise and reward their commitment.  We also believe in the importance of a fair and flexible balance between work and other aspects of life.

Trafford's Transformation Programme has just been launched and will examine new ways of working to deliver our services.  This will provide a challenge for existing staff and you too, if you join us. 

Adaptability to change is going to be a great asset so be prepared.
