Situated on the North East Wales border, Wrexham has a vibrant centre and is surrounded by rural villages. The post is based within the Public Protection service in the Environmental Health and Housing Standards team comprising environmental protection (pollution control, air quality, statutory nuisances, etc) and housing standards (private sector housing).

Knowledge on serving notices, arranging for works to be carried out in default and preparing case files for prosecution is essential.

You will work as part of the team and support the Team Lead in the supervision and operation of specified work areas or projects. As agile working is part of the service there is flexibility in the way work is carried out (flexible working, working from a variety of locations, home working, mobile working, etc).

You will hold a BSc (Hons) in Environmental Health or a Diploma in Environmental Health or recognised equivalent, including EHORB Registration. The ability to speak Welsh is desirable.

The Council will support your continued professional development and encourage you to play a key role in the future development of the service.

We offer casual user car allowance and operate a Work Life Balance scheme. Relocation expenses are payable in approved cases.
