Telemark county council (Telemark fylkeskommune) is the level of public government between the national government and the municipalities. It is the second largest employer in the county, with approximately 1600 employees.
The county council's main task is to act as a regional developer. This means it is our responsibility to help expand the labour market by stimulating creativity and innovation. We also work to provide businesses with the best possible general conditions by, for example, developing the transportation sector or making sure our young people leave the school system with the best possible level of skills.
