The Council is run by Councillors, who are elected by the local community. Councillors are in charge of making decisions about local services and budgets, each representing a specific area of work and serving for four years. The work of a Councillor includes holding surgeries to help local people, supporting local organisations, campaigning on local issues, and developing links with the community. The underlying aim of the work that we do is to enhance all service provision to every customer, and to continuously improve how we perform as an organisation.
We constantly strive to make Mid Sussex a better, safer and more exciting place to live in. We want to enhance our environment and revitalise our towns. Our aim is for Mid Sussex to be a modern and vibrant place to live and work in, whilst remaining true to the qualities of the District that we love the most.

In total, MSDC employs just over 300 staff who work in the many varied departments as listed above. A career at MSDC is both challenging and rewarding. We work in collaboration with other public services as well as private sector "partners", and there are significant opportunities for innovative professionals to further develop their individual skill-sets, whilst making a beneficial contribution to what the Council provides for the local community of Mid Sussex. We consistently strive to be ''an employer of first choice'' within the public sector and have successfully been re-accredited with the Investor in People status on four separate occasions.
