These exciting opportunities have arisen to join a dedicated Environmental Health team which delivers services across the rural districts of both Bolsover District Council and North East Derbyshire District Council. The districts are an ideal place to live, work and visit and are situated between the Peak District National Park and Sherwood Forest and have excellent access to the M1 motorway network with ease of access to Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham.

Environmental Health Officer (Commercial)

The post holder will be involved with the full range of food safety interventions, food and water sampling, health and safety enforcement and accident investigation, animal licensing, infectious disease investigations and the provision of business support and advice.

Technical Officer (Environmental Protection)

This post holder will be involved in a range of environmental health duties providing technical advice and support in relation to noise control, contaminated land and air quality. The investigation of noise and nuisance complaints and associated enforcement activities including the preparation of reports, notices and evidence gathering is also part of the role and some experience in this work is desirable.

For both posts, you must have current knowledge of relevant legislation and codes of practice and have effective negotiating, influencing, diplomacy and advocacy skills.

Working within our busy multi-disciplined Environmental Health department you will also contribute to the wider public health work of the service as appropriate to support our resilient and flexible approach to service delivery.

The ideal applicants will be innovative and enthusiastic having a “can do” approach to work and a focus on customer satisfaction and outcomes. They will be able to organise and prioritise their own workload to ensure targets are met.

It is also necessary to have excellent communication and IT skills in order to deal with a wide range of customers, partners and agencies and be able to deal with conflict, challenging and difficult situations working effectively to find solutions.

It is preferable that the successful candidates possess a full driving licence and use of a car in order to undertake site investigations across the district.

We offer a fantastic range of benefits that include generous holidays (from 29 days a year (up to 34 days after 5 years’ service) plus bank holidays), local government pension scheme, subsidised leisure membership and flexible working in many roles. We offer well-defined opportunities through our learning and development programme. We also have an employee wellbeing programme and an employee assistance programme.
