  • Being able to demonstrate the preparation, drafting and service of enforcement notices and the initiation and implementation of legal proceedings.

         You will need

  • A recognised degree in Environmental Health or a recognised diploma in Environmental Health and a Certificate of Registration from the Environmental Health Officers Registration Board
