Finance, Procurement & Technology - Working for Essex
Making Essex better, safer and fairer for millions. I’m proud
of what tech does here.

Welcome to Finance & Technology

“The Finance and Technology function is integral to Essex County Council’s ways of working and how we support Essex citizens. Our technology team work across all services ensuring that we are able to provide great solutions to both the workforce and 1.4 million residents of Essex in a digital age. Our Finance team oversees all financial management aspects  – and as the second largest local authority in the country, with that scale comes opportunity both professionally. But most importantly of all, we want people who are creative thinkers who want to find better value ways to deliver outcomes to Essex residents.

As well as Finance and Technology, we also have a centralised Procurement team that is CIPs accredited – overseeing contract management, sourcing and market shaping for over £1billion spend.  We provide arrangements for Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) members through the Essex Pension Fund and are the lead accountable body for the delivery of economic growth with the South Essex Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP).

We look for individuals who can match our passion, bring expertise and ideas and join us in delivering outstanding professional services. Please take a look at our vacancies and explore what opportunities there are for you to join us.”
