If you are in receipt of a pension upon commencing employment with the authority, this may affect your pension entitlements and you should therefore seek advice from the relevant Pensions Authority.
About the Post:
Regulatory Services at Barnsley protect the health, safety and well-being of those who live, work in and visit the borough, enabling local businesses to comply with their regulatory responsibilities. That’s where you come in, as a Field Officer in the contact tracing team. You will primarily be involved in contact tracing and assisting in infectious disease investigations.
Creativity, ambition and a focus on people. That’s what matters at Barnsley Council. Our award-winning council is on an exciting journey of change. It’s all about putting local people at the heart of everything, listening to and doing good for our communities. We’re now more innovative, more efficient and provide better value for money. The changes are clear to see - from new businesses and jobs, to improving school results and to museums being recognised for their community engagement.
Shape a better future with us
We’re thrilled to have achieved Investors in People (IIP) Gold status for how we lead, support and develop people. Now we’d like you to be part of our success and help us take change further.

Your role in our journey
You will specialise in the area of contact tracing and infectious diseases within the contact tracing team. You will be a part of the wider Food, Health and Safety team and may also be asked to provide support in these areas.
What you’ll need
To join us, you’ll need a minimum of a level 3 qualification. A recognised qualification relevant to the work of the team, will unlock higher level positions dependent on your relevant professional experience. Even for beginners, some knowledge of regulatory services and food hygiene/health and safety/infectious disease legislation is essential. Whatever level you join us at, you will also bring to the role a commitment to work flexibly, and an appetite for engaging in continuous training and professional development in this rewarding field of work.
