NOISE AND NUISANCE OFFICER
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
£31,434 - £34,986 plus 20% shift allowance
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 additional Noise and Nuisance Officer. You will be part of a team of officers responsible for responding to, investigating, and resolving service requests relating primarily to noise and nuisance.
As a 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. Ideally, you will have experience in the work of an Environmental Health Department, particularly in relation to Noise and Nuisance issues. A good communicator, you will have a working knowledge of relevant legislation and powers, i.e. Environmental Protection Act 1990, Control of Pollution Act 1974, Noise and Statutory Nuisance Act 1993. You will have exceptional organisation skills and, ideally, will have recent experience of undertaking 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.
