I have been working at Essex County Council

Pros

ECC is working hard to shed it's local authority restrictions. Whilsty it makes for a tough place to work at times, the changes are positive and will lead to a much more dynamic environment in the future. Whilst togin theough this, there uis a fantyastic sense of support amongst my team and others that I work with which epitonises this environment.

Cons

Whilst the change is happening, there will continue to be some uncertainty, which is understandable. Whilst salaries are exopected to stay at their current level, they are actually set at hiogher than most other local authorities, so remain competitive.
