We think East Sussex County Council is a great place to work. One of the most important things about working here is the knowledge that you’re working to help others and the real sense of achievement and purpose that brings.
While almost every role at the Council is different, there are some core principles we all work to in terms of both what we do and how we do it. These are summarised in what we call the ‘East Sussex Way’:
- We are customer driven and work with our customers to find the best solutions

We think it’s important to trust and empower our staff to use their judgement and we try not to put bureaucracy in their way. We also strive for equality of opportunity in all aspects of work.
Where possible we encourage our staff to work in an agile way. This can mean working at one of our sites with your team, or at home when needed, but always retaining a strong team identity. We will provide you with the technology and equipment, to do your job efficiently from wherever you are.
