Join the transformation
So just what makes Warrington a great place to live and work?
Check out all of the great benefits of working for Warrington Borough council
Location, location, location – our road and rail links are second to none, two international airports are only thirty minutes away, and the attractions of Manchester, Liverpool and Chester city centres within easy reach.
Warrington itself offers an outstanding and diverse shopping experience, and a wealth of leisure, cultural, sporting and social opportunities.
Major visitor attractions include Walton Hall and Gardens, the 15,000 capacity Halliwell Jones Stadium – home to Super League side Warrington Wolves – and Parr Hall, a surprisingly intimate performance venue that frequently attracts major national and international acts.
Warrington also hosts an annual ‘Neighbourhood Weekender’, headlined this year by Noel Gallagher and the Courteeners.
Time Square development
Warrington’s night-time economy is renowned throughout the region thanks to an eclectic blend of high quality restaurants, bars and avant-garde districts.
All this will soon be complemented by Time Square, £100million+ investment in our town centre’s leisure and retail offer due for completion in 2019.
A great place to live
*Warrington is the ‘second best place to live in the UK’ (Sarah Beeny, UK's Best Place to Live, Channel 4, 2017) and was placed fourth nationally in the uSwitch ‘Better Family Life Index’ in 2016.
And Warrington means business – we were the only urban economy in the north of England to feature in the Centre for Cities’ annual ‘healthcheck’ (2018).
