There are opportunities for enthusiastic Environmental Health professionals to join our busy Regulatory Service teams on a permanent basis and as bank/casual officers:
Business Regulation – You will have the ability to deliver elements of the food safety/standards and health and safety team plan. This will include inspections, and investigations (communicable disease, complaints, and accident notifications) undertaking enforcement activities when necessary.
Environmental Regulation - You will have the ability to deliver the elements of the environmental protection team plan. This will include investigations into nuisance, fly tipping and pest complaints, administering public health funerals, providing responses to planning and licencing consultations and assisting in the IPPC inspection programme.
For both posts:
You must have good oral and written communication skills, be confident working with IT applications. In addition, it is essential to possess an investigative, assertive approach to problem solving. It is important that you are able to work as part of a team in supporting other colleagues to provide an effective and efficient Environmental Health Service.
You will be expected to work out of hours on a rota basis and depending on fluctuating demands work in other aspects of Environmental Health may be necessary, enabling you to broaden your experience and maintain core skills. Applications are invited from candidates possessing a degree in Environmental Health who are also registered with the Environmental Health Registration Board.
