Hambleton District Council is looking for an Environmental Health Officer to work in the Council’s Environmental Health service in the Residential Team.

In the County of North Yorkshire, Hambleton is recognised for the quality of life on offer in its picturesque market towns and major villages of Bedale, Thirsk, Great Ayton, Stokesley and Easingwold.  The main town and administrative center is Northallerton. 

You will be based in Civic Centre, Northallerton and there you will benefit from car free parking.

You will be working within a team of officers that undertake a wide range of duties including the investigation and control of noise, pollution and statutory nuisances, inspection of permitted processes and contaminated land and private sector housing enforcement as well as consultations in relation to licensed premises and planning applications and enforcement of standards at caravan sites.

The successful candidate will be a confident self-motivated professional with excellent enforcement and negotiation skills.  You will have good communication and organisational skills as you will be dealing with a mixed audience of residents, landlords, partner agencies and other stakeholders.  The successful candidate will be required to work independently while supporting the team members to achieve the broader outcomes of the team.
