3 x Environmental Health Officers / Housing Inspectors

Temporary 1 year fixed term contract, with potential for extension dependant on funding.

In Rotherham, our innovative approaches to tackling rogue landlords, neighbourhood anti-social behaviour and enviro-crime are delivering significant results.  In some of our most deprived communities we have driven up private rented property standards, driven out rogue landlords and reduced the rates of fly tipping and anti-social behaviour.  We are attracting additional external funding and developing our use of powers under the Housing and Planning Act 2016 to ensure these changes are sustainable.

We are looking for 3 highly motivated and committed Environmental Health Officers or Housing Inspectors to join us and make a difference the people of Rotherham, who can help us make the best use of anti-social behaviour tools and powers, civil penalties, rent repayment orders and licensing fees to improve neighbourhoods and housing conditions at the same time as encouraging positive behaviour change.

To meet the requirements of this exciting role, you must have a good working knowledge of private sector housing or neighbourhood environmental health and ASB enforcement.  You should also have proven experience of developing and sustaining effective working relationships.

We will also consider newly qualified EHOs or applicants who have worked in an environmental health regulatory setting with transferrable skills who can demonstrate the competencies and behaviours it takes to be an excellent investigator.

Do you want to be part of a significant change, and help deliver the next steps on our improvement journey?  Do you have a passion for neighbourhood focussed environmental health in a truly holistic and partnership based service?  Then we would be delighted to hear from you.

For an informal discussion about the available roles, please contact Matt Finn, Community Protection Manager, Tel: 01709 823134.
