Principal Environmental Health Officer (Business Compliance)

We are looking to recruit a lead officer to manage the Councils food hygiene and health & safety service, but this position offers far more opportunities beyond that.

We are the fastest growing Council outside of the south-east of England and we’ve made sure that our local food and drink sector has grown with us. Collectively the food businesses in South Derbyshire have got the best food hygiene ratings in the country. By providing a balance of enforcement and business support, this position will be critical in keeping these standards up.

We have developed a big ambition to turn these good business relationships into ways of generating extra income. Through our numerous Primary Authority agreements, we are providing additional services to our clients which gives this role an exciting extra dimension. This position will have the opportunity to continue to grow and expand these services as well as maintaining our core focus on protecting public health.

The small team also play an active role in an evolving range of projects to support improving public health outcomes, such as our award-winning major food waste prevention project with Sainsbury’s.     

Managing a small team of specialist officers, this position offers an excellent career development opportunity as well as the chance to make a big impact.

Our offices are based in Swadlincote, in the heart of the glorious National Forest. The position offers excellent development and training opportunities within a friendly and supportive working environment.
