Do you want to be part of a fast-paced and dynamic team working within the vibrant City of Cambridge?

Working in an iconic, vibrant diverse and expanding University city such as Cambridge, you will be joining an organisation where Environmental Health is an important and highly regarded Service.  Here at Cambridge City, we work as one council to achieve our vision, promoting Cambridge as a great place to live, learn and work and where we care for the planet and the people of Cambridge.

We have two opportunities for Environmental Health Officers / Senior Technical Officers to join the Commercial & Licensing Team to undertake a range of duties. Being EHORB registered and food competent, food hygiene will be a key aspect of your varied workload. With the Team also covering Health & Safety, infectious disease control, statutory nuisance, licensed premises, taxi licensing and various other licensing activities, you will also be involved in a wide range of investigations and inspections in relation to Commercial activities within the city. You will be supported in your work by your Team colleagues, including both a Principal EHO and Senior Technical Officer(s).

You will join us with experience of working with the public, carrying out investigations and inspections, and an in-depth and current knowledge of legislation in food hygiene and health and safety law; existing licensing knowledge would be a bonus. You will have the ability to communicate well at all levels and will be able to present facts and negotiate in a balanced manner. Confident in the preparation and construction of reports you will be able to interpret legislation and apply standards and legal requirements to support decisions. For both roles you will already have a Degree or Diploma in Environmental Health or the Higher Certificate in Food Control with the Food Inspection endorsement.

Maybe you are looking to take the next step in your career, perhaps considering a side-ways move in a really interesting and important area of work? The broad range of work you will encounter, in addition to the recently introduced career grade structure, means that Cambridge City can help provide you with the range and depth of experiences that really count. Could this role be your next step?

If you have the talents we’re looking for, we’ll give you a warm welcome – and access to a range of benefits including generous annual leave, pension and discounts on public transport. You will also enjoy opportunities for flexible working, a broad learning and development programme and access to our health and wellbeing programme. We also have a relocation package available for those who are looking to relocate to Cambridgeshire.
