We are looking for a motivated, conscientious and enthusiastic team player to join our Licensing Team (based at the Council Offices in Kirkby-in-Ashfield). Located in west Nottinghamshire, Ashfield consists of three towns surrounded by beautiful countryside. Rich in natural, cultural and industrial heritage and with excellent transport links, including its proximity to the M1 and A38, Ashfield is in easy reach to surrounding towns and cities such as Nottingham, Chesterfield and Sheffield.
Your primary role will be to provide advice by way of email, telephone and face-to-face meetings to the general public, licence holders and a wide range of stakeholders on licensing matters; and to review and process applications and issue licences. You will also handle complaints about licence holders, carry out background compliance checks of applicants and assist your colleagues in the Licensing Team with the general day-to-day activities of the Service.
The Licensing Department can be a very busy place to work, but it is also a very enjoyable and at times challenging role, and we are committed to training you and to helping you build a career in Licensing. We are an innovative, ambitious and forward thinking Council.
If you have experience of clerical / administrative work, can work within tight deadlines, can follow procedures and are able to keep calm and stay focused when the pressure is on, then this could be the perfect role for you. Knowledge of licensing legislation or experience of working in a regulatory role will be an advantage.
For an informal discussion, please contact Julian Alison, Licensing Manager on 01623 457364.
