Private Sector Housing Environmental Health Practitioner

£32,173 to £37,851 p.a. incl. plus PrP
Richmond office

The London Boroughs of Richmond upon Thames and Wandsworth present a unique opportunity to be part of a team who are working together to create a ground-breaking shared staffing structure across both boroughs.

You will be required to investigate complaints using HHSRS, inspect and evaluate properties including HMOs, and give advice regarding hazards affecting the health and safety of occupants living in privately rented accommodation.
The team works with landlords and private property owners to encourage them to improve properties using enforcement powers when necessary and where housing conditions don't meet minimum legal standards.

The role demands a sound knowledge of environmental health legislation and skills to successfully communicate requirements and influence standards and behaviour. A commitment to providing high standards of customer service and the skill and discipline to deliver this across a large and varied workload are also essential. We have a supportive Environmental Services team and benefits include central office accommodation in both Wandsworth & Richmond boroughs, free health checks (for over 40s), flexible working, and performance related pay.

If you feel that you have the skills we are looking for and would like to take advantage of this unique opportunity, then we would like to hear from you.

For an informal discussion please contact Jas Lally on tel: 020 8871 6140.

Please complete an application online at www.wandsworth.gov.uk/jobs 

We encourage applicants to make on-line applications wherever possible.

If you have any problems with the online service please email adminhr@wandsworth.gov.uk

Closing date: 05 February 2017

Interviews are expected to be held w/c 13 February 2016

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
