How you’ll make a difference

You will make a real and positive difference to the people living in our community by being part of a team that delivers services that protect the health of our residents, businesses and communities through providing advice, support and taking enforcement action where necessary.

What does a typical day look like?

You’ll carry out surveys, inspections and investigations, write letters and reports, serve legal notices, present cases and act as an expert witness in Court to ensure statutory requirements relating to noise and statutory nuisance, pest control, private water supplies, drainage, planning and licensing are fulfilled. This will include mediating and negotiating satisfactory outcomes to service requests from the public, Councillors and MP’s.

Daily you’ll appraise planning and licensing applications, carry out environmental assessments and recommend planning/licensing conditions, to ensure that the environmental implications of applications are addressed, to prevent public health implications. You will respond when necessary to major incidents or other emergencies requiring the response of environmental services staff.

You will be responsible for the organisation of your personal workload including maintenance of records, writing of letters and reports and work with other team members to ensure the targets of the team are achieved. You will also be expected to lead on one or more functional areas or projects with either a team or wider-service focus and provide support to the Air Quality Officer.

Using your knowledge you will contribute to the development, implementation, monitoring and review of the team’s service plan.
