An exciting opportunity has arisen in our Environmental Protection and Community Safety Team. This role will involve a wide variety of work across the Borough of West Lancashire.

The Borough offers a wide contrast between open farmland and small picturesque villages together with the larger vibrant market town Ormskirk.

Our largest town Skelmersdale is a hive of urban activity, combining thriving business districts, central and local shopping centres with plenty of green spaces and surrounding woodlands.

We require a qualified Environmental Health Officer with a keen interest in pollution control and public health, including air quality, who is seeking a wide variety of work in a highly motivated team. The post holder will be involved with a wide range of complaint, planning and licensing work and also with permitted processes.

A willingness to work outside of normal office hours is essential, including on a rota basis as part of a team of "Out of Hours" officers.
