Calderdale is situated in Yorkshire nestling in the South Pennines. It is an area of rich cultural heritage, impressive architecture, stunning landscapes and charming towns and villages. With excellent road and rail links and within easy reach of Leeds and Manchester, Calderdale is a great place to live, work and visit.

Calderdale has a vision for 2024 as a place where you can realise your potential whoever you are. This is a great opportunity for a motivated and forward thinking officer who is thrives in working as part of a team environment which is committing to driving forward the service in challenging times.

Calderdale Council has just completed a fundamental and cross council review of enforcement and is currently implementing a holistic problem solving approach based on engagement, education and enforcement in order to deliver better outcomes for communities.

This new approach will bring together, under a single service lead, many of the Council services that include enforcement as part of their statutory and non–statutory duties.

Calderdale Council is looking for a highly motivated, fully qualified and experienced EHORB registered Officer with a Higher Certificate in Food Premise Inspection or Environmental Health Officer (with relevant Food Safety experience) to work within the Food Safety Team.

You will be responsible for day to day delivery of the Calderdale’s Food Safety Programme working alongside a team of professional and technical staff. As part of the wider Community Protection Team you will be working alongside officers who have responsibility for other elements of the new enforcement approach thus providing resilience and inter-operability across all enforcement activity within Calderdale Council.

It is critical that the successful applicant will be able to show a high level of competence and experience in food inspection and safety work negotiation. Close working with partners both statutory and within the voluntary and community sector is seen as a must for this role.

If you are looking for a unique opportunity to gain further experience and knowledge in Food Safety as well as the wider enforcement agenda such as Environmental Protection, Licensing, Anti-social Behaviour and Community Safety then you are looking at the right place.
