Each work programme requires high performance standards and a professional approach.

  • Experience in effectively managing projects to meet objectives and have a strong work ethic with the ability to prioritise multiple projects & tasks to meet tight deadlines.
  • Be interested in designing innovative playable spaces for all abilities, with skills in designing both natural and traditional play areas with a strategic design approach so play areas across Kirklees are complimentary and original with bespoke elements. 
  • Demonstrate strong technical, design and documentation capabilities with experience across a wide range of project types and all work stages.
  • Work well in a team and enjoy delivering projects with community engagement and input to meet Council objectives.
