The Epsom & Ewell Environmental Health Team have been at the centre of the local response to Covid-19 - investigating outbreaks, carrying out contact tracing and supporting the community’s resilience. We continue to be involved with this work whilst carrying on our existing duties inspecting for hygiene in food businesses, ensuring landlords provide safe homes, dealing with pollution, neighbour noise and poor air quality and investigating waste crimes such as flytipping.

Epsom & Ewell Borough Council is delighted to offer the start of a career in Environmental Health undertaking these tasks and more whilst being paid a salary to both study for a degree and to work assisting the Environmental Health Team in their tasks.

Once you have completed the salaried four year apprenticeship and professional pathway, you will be eligible for employment as a fully fledged Environmental Health Practitioner in a range of public, private and third sector employers with an almost limitless opportunity to make a contribution to public health and public protection. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown the value of Environmental Health Practitioners and the national shortage of suitable individuals makes those with the right training and skills very sought after.

You will study at the University of Middlesex on their four year Environmental Health (Apprenticeship) BSc (Honours) course commencing Autumn 2022, and when not attending taught classes will work with experienced and professional colleagues supporting all the environmental health functions including food safety, housing, pollution control and health and safety at work.

As a condition of continued employment it will be necessary to be accepted on and to progress through the degree programme. Support will be available to liaise with the University directly since this takes place outside of the UCAS process.


As part of the apprenticeship scheme, the degree tuition fees are fully funded and you will earn a salary while you study and work. We will cover your travel expenses to University and pay for you to become an affiliate member of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.

You will receive 24 days annual leave to be taken around University and work commitments plus subsidised gym membership.
