Environmental Health Officer

£31,953 - £35,961 per annum

Westminster, London

Be where it all happens

In a vibrant, 24/7 city like ours, Environmental Health is no simple matter. We work in a complex urban environment, alongside many other agencies. Every day, we support an incredible area and community – one that welcomes some 55 million tourists a year.

As an Environmental Health Officer, you’ll have a great opportunity to collaborate with other agencies and serve a hugely diverse population. You’ll monitor noise and air quality at construction sites and give expert advice on planning applications. Our central London location means that the challenges are varied. Expect a rich mix of neighbourhoods and exciting regeneration projects.

Specifically, you’ll:

  • Enforce environmental health policies to safeguard people’s wellbeing
  • Make routine and unplanned site visits to check compliance and collect evidence
  • Investigate complaints from the public and give advice and assistance
  • Give talks and champion compliance through education
  • Take legal action – start proceedings and give evidence in court
  • Make sure that Environmental Health works closely with other services and partners.

All this calls for a diploma (minimum) in Environmental Health or another relevant qualification. You’ll also need some experience in this field of work. It’s important that your level of written and spoken English is appropriate for this role. After all, you’ll be dealing with the public and partner agencies as well as colleagues from other functions. If you can work as part of a team (but also on your own when required), there could be a place for you at the heart of a ‘City for All’.

Join us – and be where it all happens.
