London Borough of Hounslow

Principal Regulatory Officer (Food)

Salary: £38-£40,000

It’s not just enforcement.

It’s enthusiasm and expertise.

Hounslow is a community of communities. With a unique blend of picturesque open spaces and excellent transport links – it’s no wonder over 250,000 people call it home. As one of the most culturally diverse areas in the UK, the choice of eating establishments is huge. So, as businesses re-open, it’s critical that food hygiene standards are upheld. As a Food Regulatory Officer, you’ll ensure these are met and followed across this vibrant borough.

Importantly, you’ll carry out official controls at a range of establishments. You’ll also gather and record information, accurately updating Hounslow Council’s database with your findings. We’ll also need you to take samples and interpret the results. With your substantial practical experience, you’ll know how to work in compliance with service standards and internal procedures.

It’s important that we investigate food and public health complaints. So you’ll be confident in your approach, and take proportionate enforcement action in cases of non-compliance. If needed, you’ll also assist in the preparation for legal proceedings. Plus, where appropriate, you have the chance to act as a witness.

As a self-starter, you’ll be able to work alone with little supervision. You’ll also be an expert communicator, able to explain issues and concepts clearly. We’ll also expect you to have a B.Sc. (hons) or M.Sc. degree in Environmental Health with a Certificate of Registration issued by the Environmental Health Registration Board (EHRB) or its successor. This’ll be supported by your Higher Certificate in Food Control and a full, valid UK driving licence.

Together, we’re here for Hounslow.
