What we do

Essex County Council is one of the largest county councils in the country, with a workforce of more than 43,000 people.

Our people are important to us with every one of them working to achieve our ambitions and secure a more prosperous future for the people of Essex.

As a place of work, Essex County Council feels different from most other organisations. The atmosphere is relaxed but professional, research-driven, customer-focused and very much connected to the real events in the local community. We are working even more collaboratively with our partners and, most importantly, the many communities of Essex, to continue to ensure we all contribute to the great quality of life the people of Essex enjoy and deserve.

We have a strong work ethic which is outcome-focused, collaborative and innovative. It’s about being proactive and self-starting, and ultimately taking accountability for our actions. We want to empower our people to take further responsibility and deliver results that make a lasting impact.

If you want to use your skills or learn new ones that will allow you to make a difference, Essex County Council may have the right opportunity for you. We recruit across a wide range of functions from Social care to Technology Services, and everything in between.

In return, we offer a wide range of benefits, employee networks, flexible working and the chance to really make a difference. For many of our people, this sense of contributing to the public good is one of the most rewarding aspects of working here.
