We are committed to working in partnership with communities, voluntary and private sector organisations and local businesses. Together we form the Wolverhampton Partnership to prioritise businesses, empower people and communities, re-invigorate the city and support the council to be confident and capable to realise our ambition to be ‘excellent’.

We are investing heavily in skills and training. There will be new roles and new opportunities which makes this an exceptionally exciting time to join us.

The city

The city has already seen rapid developments with major projects like i54, The Way Youth Zone and i10 and more exciting developments are planned for the westside of the city. The leisure-led mixed user scheme includes a multi-screen cinema, restaurants, bars, hotel, multi-storey car park and apartments
