Full time permanent
East Devon is independently recognised as an outstanding place and so it follows that its council must also strive to be outstanding. Everything we do is aimed at ensuring that East Devon is a place that people want to live in, work in, visit and enjoy. Our ambition is to be an outstanding council which works together with local people to create great value services and an outstanding community, economy and environment for East Devon, now and for future generations.
About the role
We are looking for an Environmental Health Officer to specialise in a full range of environmental protection activities including planning and licensing consultations, contaminated land, environmental and animal activities permits, air quality management, community protection, anti-social behaviour, noise and other statutory nuisances, national assistance funerals, bathing water quality, pest control and found (stray) dogs.
In return for your commitment, you’ll receive an excellent benefits package which includes: generous annual leave; flexi-time; access to a Local Government Pension Scheme, salary sacrifice cycle scheme, employee assistance programme and personal healthcare scheme. In addition, you’ll also be encouraged to take advantage of our outstanding learning and development opportunities.
You will hold a degree or diploma in Environmental Health and be EHRB registered. Adept at organising your workload and managing conflicting demands, you will also have excellent written and verbal communication skills enabling you to demonstrate respect and consideration for others as well as the ability to quickly build rapport with customers and stakeholders alike. You will have the ability to manage situations professionally and calmly.
You will also be fully conversant with Microsoft Office and database applications and able to carry out independent research. This role involves travelling throughout the district with equipment, so you will also need a valid driving license and access to a car or suitable mode of transport (reasonable adjustments may be possible according to the Equality Act).
