Jobs, apprenticeships and volunteering
Wyre Forest District Council came into being in 1974 as a result of the reorganisation of Local Government and is one of six districts in Worcestershire.
Whatever your role within Wyre Forest District Council, every day you will be working to benefit people living in the area. The District is a mix of urban rural and market and riverside town communities covering 195 square kilometres. The three main towns of Kidderminster, Bewdley and Stourport-on-Severn and several surrounding villages including Arley, Rock, Chaddesley Corbett and Wolverley make up the district. Around 98,000 people live here and you can help shape our district’s future as part of a workforce that makes a difference.
Kidderminster, the largest town in the district, is approximately 20 miles from Birmingham and Worcester and has good road and rail links to most major towns. The area's semi rural, yet central location makes the whole district an attractive location in which to both live and work. We also work in partnership with a number of voluntary organisations and other local authorities such as county, district and parish councils. We employ approximately 390 employees and manage a net revenue budget of £12.8 million.
Quality, professionalism and commitment are the key drivers of the services we offer to enhance the quality of life of local residents and visitors to the district. In order to maintain high standards it is necessary to have a diverse workforce which is highly competent and experienced. It focuses on making sure the services we offer meet the aspirations and needs of our local community.
