Senior Environmental Health Officer

Ref: 735

Sector:   Environmental Health including Food Safety, Health and Safety, and Environmental Protection

Contract: Permanent

Hours: Full Time

Grade 4 - £30,153 to £34,539 plus a benefit allowance of £3,657 per annum

Hastings is an ambitious, progressive and interventionist Council, and environmental health is an essential and valued service at the core of our public protection and community safety work.

We have changed the way we deliver our environmental health services by combining them into a single generic environmental health team (except for private sector housing).  This has helped us to provide a more effective and flexible service for residents and businesses, as well as a more rewarding range of work for everyone in our team.

We now need a new field officer to complete our experienced and friendly team.  If you are an ambitious and progressive environmental health practitioner, our new generic approach will appeal to you and provide the opportunity for excellent experience of wide ranging environmental health issues. 

We have excellent multi-agency arrangements, involving innovative community safety meetings to agree rapid collaborative approaches to addressing serious environmental health and community safety cases.

We’re looking for excellent communicators, who are happy to embrace a more generic approach to delivering environmental health services in our historic seaside town.

A full driving licence is essential for this post which also attracts a separate benefit allowance of    £3,657 as is a willingness to work outside of normal office hours from time to time.  

In addition to support with training and personal development, we operate flexible approaches to working including a mixture of hot desking and homeworking for environmental health personnel with laptops and smart phones issued as standard.

For an informal discussion or for further information please contact Ian Wheeler, Environmental Health Manager on 01424 783230.

Please apply on our website at where you can also find the job description and person specification.

Closing date: Friday 19th January 2018 at midday
