Grade F - £27,741 to £31,346 per year
37 hours per week
If you are passionate about improving people’s homes in the private sector, then this role is a great opportunity for you to gain experience of inspecting and improving homes, or bring your existing experience to bear as part of a small team in Erewash.
Your work will include a range of private sector housing enforcement activities but will have a focus on the investigation of housing complaints, the inspection and licensing of houses in multiple occupation and the taking of appropriate enforcement action.
Although you will need a degree in Environmental Health or an equivalent Building/Surveying qualification and be competent in applying the Housing Health and Safety Rating System, we are willing to support you if you are early in your qualification and haven’t had the chance to turn your enthusiasm and knowledge into practice. The ability to interpret and apply legislation and case law and the imagination to use the available tools to improve people’s homes are key to this role as is your ability to work as part of a team.
Whether you are drawing up schedules of work, inspecting Homes in Multiple Occupation or temporary accommodation, negotiating with landlords, preparing court action or contributing to surveys and strategic plans, you will be determined to provide a service of which everyone in Erewash can be proud.
We offer a range of benefits such as flexible working, free parking across the borough, a car user allowance, access to a contributory local government pension scheme and subsidised gym membership.
