About Essex County Council
Essex County Council is one of the largest county councils in the country, with a workforce of more than 43,000 people.
Every single one of them is key to our current and future success. With the energy and passion will help us achieve our ambitions and secure a more prosperous future for the people of Essex.
To achieve these successes, we have developed a number of core operating styles that get the best out of our people – enabling them to lead by example and champion excellence.
We encourage them to be outcomes focused, to be clear about what are they aiming to achieve, to be lean and agile, work collaboratively with others and be innovative in their thinking. It's about being proactive and self-starting, and ultimately taking accountability for their actions.
In return, as part of our continued focus on becoming an employer of choice, we have a range of employee benefits,
which include a generous holiday allowance, pension, flexible working, employee discount schemes and the chance to really make a difference.
