(Senior) Environmental Health Officers - Health Protection/Private Sector Housing
From £32,048 up to £39,486 pa, plus relocation expenses of up to £5,000
Join an ambitious, innovative and optimistic authority based in a beautiful part of Hampshire
We have two exciting opportunities to join Test Valley Borough Council: a forward-thinking authority with excellent employee satisfaction rates. If you’re passionate about great service and looking for a fresh challenge where you can develop your skills within a small, professional team, we could have just the role for you.
Vacancies have arisen for an Environmental Health Officer (EHO), or Senior EHO, to work in two of our small teams of dedicated and professional employees, one in the Health Protection Team and one in the Private Sector Housing Team:
- Working as an EHO in Health Protection you will help deliver our food hygiene inspection programme and assist with a variety of other health protection functions including the inspection of workplaces, the investigation of accidents, infectious disease control and licensing.
- A new EHO post has been created in our Private Sector Housing Team to carry out a range of housing standards functions and help implement policies aimed at promoting housing renewal, home energy conservation and re-occupation of empty homes.
In both roles you’ll need to be enthusiastic, customer-focused and technically knowledgeable; with first rate problem-solving and communication skills. You’ll have opportunities to lead on various projects and work areas and also to help shape the improvement of our services.
Test Valley spans two market towns, multiple chocolate box villages and miles of stunning countryside. As we’re located just off the A303, it’s an easy trip to surrounding towns and cities, and you can also get to London in just over an hour. We’re proud of our performance as a Council and, with a new Corporate Plan focused on “Growing our Potential”, there has never been a better time to join us and contribute to our success.
We have a positive, inclusive working culture and other employee benefits include a generous holiday allowance, free car parking, an on-site staff restaurant, subsidised leisure facilities, flexi-time and a defined benefits pension scheme. A relocation package is also available subject to eligibility criteria.
For an informal discussion about these opportunities, please contact Chris Lewis, Principal EHO (Health Protection) on 01264 368465, or Deborah Vincent, Principal EHO (Private Sector Housing) on 01264 368211.
