Wirral Environmental Health Service has been redesigned and modernised to deliver a highly efficient service that is customer focused and prides itself on continual improvement. Whilst working within a generic team, officers develop the specialisms required to meet the needs of the community.

We are looking to fill a full time fully qualified Environmental Health Officer’s post (EHORB Registered). You should be enthusiastic about change, customer focused and willing to adapt to new challenges as the service evolves to meet changing customer and service demands.

The applicant must be able to undertake a range of pollution control related duties including investigation of statutory nuisance noise complaints relating to commercial premises, and responding to planning and licensing consultations. To equip you to do this you should hold a relevant qualification in acoustics or be willing to undertake appropriate training to gain such a qualification. The ability to work as part of a team to support colleagues in all areas of Environmental Health is important.

There will be training opportunities to enable the successful candidates to work in other fields of Environmental Health as future service demands dictate.
The candidates must be willing to work outside of normal office hours for which an additional payment will be made. The successful candidate may apply to be considered for essential car user allowance.
