Work for us The County Council is one of the largest employers in the county. There are good opportunities to develop in the County Council as there are many different workplaces and a lot of training is given. You can also carry out research. A new study from 2012 shows that our employees are happy with their work and see their jobs in a positive light. We have approximately 11 000 employees and our most important job is to give everyone in the county good health and medical care. We do so very many different things, from very specialised medical care to cultural activities, from the great big hospital in Uppsala to the tiny heath centre in Öregrund.
