Council overview


Our vision is to become a more responsive local authority that works well in conjunction with employees, partners and communities to deliver on key priorities and to achieve better outcomes. We want to ensure that we have the right mix of skills, flexibility and capacity for change, whilst making sure we continue to improve the quality of our core services.

Service delivery

We must be flexible and able to recognise the differences between our customers and communities in both rural Stirling and in the city, whilst keeping in mind differing priorities.

We will move towards a council that directly delivers services and supports the delivery of services, in partnership with customers, communities and other organisations.

The council is also tasked with finding savings of £29M over the next 5 years and we need to be responsive to this financial challenge whilst continuing to deliver services which are worth around £200M per year over the same 5-year period.


Our aim is to also develop and modernise the way we deliver services. The Council is committed to improving the way it engages with employees, residents and other key stakeholders, which include the public, private, voluntary and community sectors.


Our vision is for employment and training to be available and accessible to everyone in the Stirling area. We offer advice and information to help you train or get a job. Stirling Council is an equal opportunities employer.
