Who we are

Essex County Council’s (ECC) reputation as an ambitious, progressive council has never been stronger. We continue to make Essex a thriving county to live, work and visit. ECC is one of the county’s largest employers, with over 7,500 staff, providing many services including adults and children’s social care, environmental, transport, education, planning and benefits.

The Service Transformation team is one of the few established multi-disciplinary teams in local government. We’re problem solvers, and we take a user-centred approach to complex problems to help teams build good services that support the needs of Essex’s residents and businesses.

You can find out more about us and our work on our Service Transformation blog.
