Notwithstanding the above, in general terms the person responsible for council tax will be in order of priority, a tenant or occupier or the owner of the property. Accordingly, if you rent the property and occupy it as tenants, then from the point of view of the council, you would be liable for council tax. You will be able to pass on those costs to your employer if you're tenancy agreement or employers contract provides that the employer will cover the cost of such council tax as part of your agreement.
I hope the above is of some assistance but if you have any further questions, please revert to me
