Situated in the West of Scotland with just over 90,000 residents we have a choice of rural, urban and waterfront locations.  The area has a rich past shaped by its world famous shipyards along the Clyde, and boasts many attractions ranging from the iconic Titan crane and Dumbarton Rock to the beauty of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. We are just half an hour from Glasgow (via the A82 or M8) and there is easy access and a half-hourly train service which provides connections to Loch Lomond, Glasgow and beyond. The Council is the largest employer in the area with over 5,000 employees and a gross annual budget of more than £243 million, and offers rewarding and challenging jobs and careers across a diverse range of public services.  Services delivered include:

The Council has 6 key themes and related priorities for serving the area:
