The Borough of Great Yarmouth is uniquely located in the Broads National Park and boasts 15 miles of sandy beaches, a thriving port serving the oil and gas industries and a diverse multi-cultural population.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council is a forward thinking and dynamic Council and we are looking for an Environmental Health Officer for the Commercial Team who can complement the ideas and direction of Environmental Services and contribute to the Council’s strategic objectives.   The Commercial Team is responsible for food safety, health & safety, port health and animal licensing across the Borough.  You will be required to provide technical advice and guidance to the team, local businesses and Councillors on a range of subjects including food safety and infectious diseases.  You will also be required to identify new income generating work and efficiency savings for the team and Environmental Services as a whole.
