(With a focus on Housing)
NS11 £32,234 to £33,782 per annum (pay award pending)
Newark and Sherwood District Council (NSDC) is situated in the historic market town of Newark, in the heart of Nottinghamshire. We’re proud of our vast district and our national attractions including The National Civil War Centre, the Castle, Southwell Minster and Sherwood Forest. We’re easily accessible by both road and rail and we boast some of the nicest parks and green spaces in England. We’re an ambitious, forward thinking Council with strong values and a culture of doing our absolute best to serve our residents.
We now have an opportunity for a qualified Environmental Health Officer, specialising in housing, to work within the Environmental Health and Licensing Team at NSDC.
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic individual to work within the team, dealing with a wide variety of functions but focusing on Private Sector Housing Standards, Houses in Multiple Occupation, Park Home Sites, DFG and Minor Work Grants. From time to time you may also be asked to assist in other Environmental Health functions.
A qualification recognised by the Environmental Health Officers Registration Board and experience of carrying out HHSRS inspections and enforcement is essential as is the ability to demonstrate effective communication skills, the ability to analyse and interpret legislation and to enforce it in a fair and balanced way. The successful applicant will also demonstrate knowledge and understanding of all aspects of environmental health work.
Your base will be the Council’s Head Office; Castle House, Newark but you will also spend time working from home and undertaking site visits. Due to the nature of the role, regular access to a vehicle is required for travel within and outside of the district.
As an employer, we can offer a competitive salary, flexible hours, enrolment in to a local government pension scheme, agile working, a generous annual leave entitlement that increases with service and discounted gym membership. In addition to this, you will be working with a dedicated and friendly team.
