New Forest District Council is looking for an Environmental Health Officer to join a forward-thinking Environmental Protection service. As one of the Local Authorities identified in the UK Air Quality plan, this will be an interesting role to influence actions to improve air quality as well as delivering: air quality management, noise complaint investigations, planning applications, contaminated land assessments, private water supplies, drainage, and filthy and verminous premises.

We are looking for an officer who is enthusiastic, innovative and will positively contribute to driving the service forward, working as an integral member of our recently formed team.

We are one of the largest non-unitary Councils in the UK. Based in Hampshire, we have over 16 million visitors to the National Park, surrounding towns and villages, and stunning beaches along the 40-mile coastline. This all contributes to a diverse range of challenging and interesting Environmental Protection issues to resolve.

What we can offer in return is a great place to work and a great team to work with. At NFDC we believe that all our employees make a valuable contribution to the work of the council and that’s why we encourage a trusting and open culture where each employee is supported and respected equally, where ideas are actively sought, and self-development promoted. We also recognise the value of a highly motivated and engaged workforce and we actively promote a good work/life balance.

If you like the sound of this and have the ambition, knowledge and experience we’re looking for we would like to hear from you.
