With around 6,000 staff West Dunbartonshire Council is by far the biggest employer in area. The council provides more than 100 services including education, social work, housing, environmental health, planning, economic development, highways and transport.

The Council was formed on 1 April 1996 from part of the former Strathclyde Region - namely the entire district of Clydebank and the Dumbarton district less the Helensburgh area. It is one of 32 local authorities in Scotland.
