We have famous surfing beaches, beautiful and tranquil walking and challenging cycling via a network of hills and valleys.

North Devon Council officers are dedicated and enthusiastic and committed to providing the best services.  We work closely with other Devon Authorities and take the lead in driving forward change.  We would like to provide an opportunity for three enthusiastic student (graduate) Environmental Health Officers to complete their Professional Learning Portfolio and gain a Certificate of Registration with the Environmental Health Registration Board (EHRB) by working in our dedicated Public Protection Service.
