Do you want to take a lead role continuing our mission to make our economy in Calderdale more inclusive?  

Our Inclusive Economy Strategy is a key part of our partnership approach to delivering these aspirations and meeting the challenges of the 21st Century. As a Council we have set ourselves the ambition to be the Small Business Capital in the North.  But we need to do more than this for local people.

This means helping ensure that everyone shares in the benefits of growth, whether this is helping a young person thinking about their future career, someone struggling to find work or needing to re-train, a budding entrepreneur with an enterprising idea, or making sure we take social value seriously when we make investment decisions. Most importantly it’s about working with local people to make sure that what we do is actually going to deliver outcomes that we all want and create an economy that benefits everyone.

Following successful internal promotion we are looking for someone to help take forward our critical role in developing and implementing Calderdale’s inclusive economy strategy and helping to shape and drive an inclusive recovery following the Covid pandemic. You will be working with a range of stakeholders to help shape the Borough’s approach to inclusive economy.
