County Council is located in the South East of England, serving a population of over half a million residents in mostly rural locations with a number of small towns (where council offices are typically concentrated). It is a high wage area with high property prices owing to the relatively short commuting distance to central London by rail and road. The council itself employs nearly 4000 workers covering a wide range of occupations including professionals such as social workers, town planners, and solicitors, as well as operational roles such as cleaners, catering staff and waste operatives. The council has a board of corporate directors that reports to the Chief Executive of the council, who in turn is accountable to democratically elected political leaders (currently the Conservative political group that holds more than 80 per cent of ward seats across the area).
