Full Time – Permanent
Redbridge is an ambitious, diverse and exciting east-London borough. What we do is driven by changing our relationship with local people to support our vision. As a result, we've developed innovative ways to build our communities and transform our Council.
We're one of the fastest growing parts of the country and the third most diverse London borough. Our communities are attracted by a mixture of excellent schools, relatively affordable housing, high-quality open space and rapid transport connections into the heart of the City.
Redbridge is a progressive London authority embracing innovation and change. With a small yet proactive Trading Standards team we deliver priorities supporting vulnerable residents and regulating rogue traders. We champion partnership working with neighbouring authorities, Police, private sector and others.
Based in the Civic hub in Ilford’s diverse town centre, we actively encourage home, mobile and off-site working to deliver our outcomes.
This is an active field officer post and you will have to execute warrants, pursue rogue traders and support victims. You will need to be a highly motivated self-starter and completer / finisher with good communication and negotiation skills. You will work in partnership with neighbouring North-East London authorities, Police, Fire, Customs, Home Office and other enforcement teams. You will need the full range of investigation and reporting skills, including appearance at local Magistrates’ and Crown Courts.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate a record of achievement and a commitment to supporting vulnerable victims, consumers and compliant businesses within the borough.
A full driving licence or alternative means of travel to multiple sites around the borough is essential. We provide electric pool cars and cycles, or a mileage allowance to enable travel.
