Essex County Council

Essex is a unique and remarkable part of the country. Our 1,300 square miles stretch from Constable Country to the Thames Estuary, from the dynamic M11 corridor to the traditional seaside resorts of Clacton and Walton. England’s oldest town, Colchester, and two of our newest – Basildon and Harlow – are right here. Along with the City of Chelmsford, the county town, they form our major population centres. It means real choice, and makes Essex the right place for your career.

We expect everyone who works at Essex County Council to be treated and to treat everyone else with dignity and respect.

We are proud to have been recognised as ‘Excellent’ by the Local Government Association (LGA). We were commended in all five areas of the Equality framework for local government, first awarded to us in 2012.

Our aim is to maintain and exceed the requirements of the public sector duty (Equality Act 2010). And we are now a Disability Confident leader in our community. Essex County County is also developing a Faith Covenant agreement, working jointly with faith leaders and partners to support our communities.

At Essex County Council, challenging work happens every day – on the frontline and behind the scenes. In return for your dedication and talent, you deserve to feel a sense of belonging, involvement and recognition.

We have a whole team dedicated to this goal. There are no one-size-fits-all. We want you to connect with the organisation’s leaders, employee networks, employee awards and employee communication channels in a way that’s truly individual.

Your wellbeing couldn’t be more important. We treat this as a moral obligation, but it’s so much more than that. A healthy, content and resilient workforce is a productive one – and when you serve the people of Essex in the wide variety of life-enhancing ways that we do, this is essential.

We work closely with all of our colleagues to provide strong and sophisticated wellbeing support based on their needs. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but our new strategy will take us to a whole new place for mental, physical, social and financial wellbeing. Join us and you’ll find these are just some of the ways we’ll support your wellbeing: Employee Assistant Programme, Wellbeing Events and Sessions, Mental Health First Aiders and Wellbeing Focused Training.
