Uttlesford District is consistently identified as one of the best places to live in the UK. We’re ideally located, with easy access to London and Cambridge and an international airport on our doorstep, and yet, the district still retains its rural character, alongside its market towns and villages.
We are seeking an enthusiastic, highly motivated Environmental Health or Senior Environmental Health Officer to join our small and diligent team. You will act in the lead role for all food safety functions, supporting the team members in the delivery of the inspection programme across the District. There will also be responsibility for other core functions such as Health and Safety and infectious disease control and opportunity to become involved in the delivery or management of the imported food Service at Stansted Airport.
It is essential that you have a ‘can do’ attitude to work, be self-motivated, flexible, take responsibility for a varied caseload, be an effective communicator and be committed to team working.
For the senior position, proven management / supervisory experience will be desirable, but we will welcome applications from individuals wanting to develop a new managerial aspect to their career.
Applicants will have a BSc (Hons) degree in Environmental Health (or equivalent), including EHRB registration, and a detailed knowledge and experience of enforcing relevant legislation, codes of practice and practice guidance, to a level commensurate with the competency level required for the role. In depth knowledge of imported food legislation is desirable.
A full driving licence and access to a car available for work is essential. From time to time, there may be a requirement for some out of hours working.
In return we can offer you a varied and exciting role and the chance to contribute to an excellent work ethic that supports our businesses in achieving high standards of compliance.
