 We are excited to be able to offer three new posts within the busy Environmental Health and Housing Team of North Lincolnshire Council. In addition we are also able to offer two new posts within the Food & Safety Team.

 North Lincolnshire has established itself as a great place to live, work, invest and visit. Our rural setting, with picturesque villages with routes for cycling and walking also acts as a global gateway for international business, with excellent links by road, rail, bus, sea and air. This fantastic combination, alongside our historic market towns, excellent educational establishments and close proximity to major cities such as Hull, Lincoln and York, makes North Lincolnshire a place that is valued by those who choose to live and work here. North Lincolnshire Council is changing at pace. We have radically restructured the organisation to better serve our customers. We are hugely ambitious for the area. Changing how we operate to be more commercial, progressive, enabling and financially sustainable underpins this approach.

We also offer:

›A generous Local Government Pension Scheme pension supplement

›Flexible and agile working arrangements

›Generous annual leave entitlement

›Salary sacrifice schemes for cars, bicycles and additional annual leave

›Staff also enjoy a discounted gym and golf membership and health scheme cash plan

These two posts are within the Environmental Health and Housing Team of Operations and will assist in the investigation and delivery of enforcement work including housing standards within the private rented sector, investigation of statutory nuisances, anti-social behaviour and enviro crime.

Applications are welcomed from newly qualified Environmental Health Officers. Housing experience and knowledge of the Housing Health and Safety Rating System would be an advantage.

Following COVID 19, there has been an increased demand on the Food & Safety Team. We therefore are able to offer two Environmental Health Officers or Food & Safety Practitioners post, on a two year fixed term contract, to assist with this additional workload. Whilst initially we are ideally looking for someone with both Food and Health & Safety, qualifications and experience. We would also welcome applications from people with qualifications and experience in only one of these areas.

The successful candidate will have excellent verbal and written communication skills, an ability to work with sensitivity, self-confidence, assertiveness, tact and diplomacy to resolve problems effectively in potentially confrontational situations.

The post also requires knowledge of the law, codes, policies and procedures governing investigations and evidence gathering and court procedures. An ability to attend court and give evidence will be an essential part of the role.

It is essential that applicants hold a full driving licence and are able to provide a car or other means of transport in order to undertake this role.

This is an exciting opportunity to make a positive difference to the lives of North Lincolnshire’s residents and meet the council's outcomes of being safe and well.
