About the job

This is part of a progression scheme and we are looking to appoint at the M1 - M2 grade.

Do you have an EHRB registration as an Environmental Health Officer or a Higher Certificate in Food Premises Inspection or Higher Certificate in Food Control? Then this is the job for you.

We have two opportunities in the Food, Safety & Environment Team where you’ll implement and deliver complex reactive and planned workload in relation to food hygiene, food standards and health and safety, taking appropriate enforcement action to drive up compliance levels within the Borough, protecting public health.

We offer agile, flexible working and are open to job share opportunities.

About you

This is a public facing role so you’ll need to show off your fluency in speaking and writing

You will have an in-depth current knowledge and experience of relevant legislation, priorities and strategies to secure compliance.

In addition to routine and reactive work, there will be many other food and safety opportunities for you to take advantage of; including approved premises inspections, creation and delivery of training courses, projects, partnership working and primary authority related work.

We have close links with the Food Standards Agency and Regulatory Delivery in terms of the Regulating Our Future programme, with pilot projects involving our primary authority partnerships.

Located just 22 minutes from London by train, with excellent links to the M1 it makes Luton one of the most affordable commuter towns in the country.

With an ongoing £1.5bn transformation of Luton, this is attracting high quality businesses to the area, creating thousands of new jobs, housing, retail and leisure opportunities. London Luton Airport passenger numbers are also projected to increase from 12 to 18 million by 2021. It really is an exciting time to join us.

So if you have knowledge of environmental health legislation, topical issues and priorities and strategies to secure compliance and the ability to write concise and accurate reports and documents and deliver presentations then we look forward to reading your application.

Closing date: 9th November 2018
