Wrexham County Borough (Welsh: Bwrdeistref Sirol Wrecsam) is a county borough in the north-east of Wales. The county borough has a population of nearly 135,000 inhabitants, with around 63,000 residing in either the town of Wrexham, the surrounding conurbation of urban villages around Wrexham, or the two other urban towns in the county borough, Chirk and Holt. The remainder live to the south and east of the town in more rural areas, including the county borough’s large salient into the Ceiriog Valley.
The area has strong links with coal-mining and was formed on 1 April 1996 following the enactment of the Local Government (Wales) Act 1994. Borough status was inherited from the town of Wrexham, granted over 150 years ago. Most of the area was previously part of the district of Wrexham Maelor – with several communities coming from Glyndŵr – in the county of Clwyd.
Our Relationship with Wrexham County BC

Due to this, we are signed up to receive all of their agency vacancies, allowing us to send across CV’s that we feel are most suitable.
