With excellent road and rail links and within easy reach of Leeds and Manchester, Calderdale is a great place to live, work and visit.

Calderdale has a vision for 2024 as a place where you can realise your potential whoever you are.

Calderdale Council has just completed a fundamental cross council review of enforcement and is currently implementing a holistic problem solving approach based on engagement, education and enforcement in order to deliver better outcomes for communities.

It is critical that the successful applicant will be able to show an aptitude for this type of work and ideally a high level of competence and experience in Animal Health & Welfare. Close working with partners both statutory and within the voluntary and community sector is seen as a must for this role.
