About City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council
The City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council covers the communities of Baildon, Bingley, Bradford, Denholme, Haworth, Ilkley, Keighley, Shipley, Silsden, Queensbury and surrounding areas.
It serves a population approaching 522,000 and employs about 18,577 people, including schools based staff. In terms of population, it is the fourth largest Metropolitan District Council in the country.
There is a wide range of jobs within the Local Authority, from the higher levels of management to professional workers, administrative and clerical support staff, teachers, lecturers, social workers and craft and manual workers. Much of our work involves close contact with the public and there are many opportunities for employees to take an active interest in community-based initiatives. The services in many of the Departments are becoming increasingly devolved to a local level in order to respond more effectively to community needs.
The aim of the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council is to become an employer who offers genuine equal opportunities to people looking for work, and which does not unfairly discriminate against any sections of society in its recruitment and selection.
Council services are provided from a number of Departments and the employees of these Departments are based at various buildings throughout the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council area and provide a wide range of services to the community. The District priorities are regenerating our City Centre and driving economic growth, raising educational attainment and supporting our children & young people to reach their full potential, and developing our skills base to equip people with skills for work.
