District Environmental Health Officers

Grade 9, £31,370 to £36,029 (inclusive of local weighting), 3 x permanent posts: 2 x full time (37 hours) posts and 1 x part time post (18 ½ hours).  Based in Hertford.  Closing date is Monday 6 November 2017 at 9am.

Following two promotions and a retirement, East Herts Council is looking for three qualified, capable and enthusiastic Environmental Health Officers to join the Environmental Health team.  

These varied and interesting roles will see you using your professional skills and knowledge visiting a wide range of premises, from local restaurants and bars to caravan sites, zoos and private sector housing, where you’ll investigate and initiate appropriate action, including statutory action.

You will be responsible for carrying out all the environmental health duties in an area of the district.  You will take an active role in improving the quality of people’s lives and will deal with people sensitively, handle situations diplomatically and document everything accurately.

With a culture that encourages you to be proactive and a management style that acknowledges your ideas and dedication, you’ll have the autonomy to make your own decisions out on site.
