Area Senior Noise and Nuisance Officer
AREA SENIOR NOISE AND NUISANCE OFFICER
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
£36,600 to £49,600 per annum plus pay related performance bonus
Permanent, Full Time
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is one of the most culturally and economically diverse boroughs in London. The Royal Borough is less than 5 square miles in area, so you are never far from a famous landmark or a high profile business. Large scale events include the Notting Hill Carnival and the Chelsea Flower Show. This diversity presents interesting challenges as we try to protect our residents and improve conditions for those living, working and visiting our borough.
An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Noise and Nuisance Team for an Area Senior Noise and Nuisance Officer. You will manage a small team of officers responsible for responding to, investigating, and resolving service requests relating primarily to noise and nuisance.
The successful candidate will be responsible to the Team Manager, deputising for him/her when necessary, and carry your own caseload of work relating to Licensing and Planning cases.
As a qualified, confident and motivated Environmental Health Practitioner you will ensure both the highest standards of customer care and a fair, equitable approach to Noise and Nuisance issues. You will have a Degree or Diploma in Environmental Health or relevant subject area. You will also be a Member of the Institute of Acoustics, or Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, or other relevant professional body. A good communicator, you will represent the department at a range of internal and external meetings and working parties. Ideally, you will have previous experience of managing staff although this is a desirable, but not an essential, requirement.
You will have exceptional organisation skills and recent experience of under taking Noise and Nuisance issues as well as managing a comprehensive workload. In return we will make a real commitment to ensuring that your career development and training needs are met.
