Environmental Health Practitioners (Private Sector Housing)
The Regulatory Services Partnership led by Merton Council requires an experienced Private Sector Housing Officer to work in Wandsworth and Richmond Boroughs. Working across two boroughs will give you the unique opportunity to gain diverse experience from working in both an inner and outer London borough.
The Private Sector Housing Team is a fast paced team that makes a real and direct impact on improving the quality of life of residents. The successful candidates will be required to inspect and evaluate housing hazards, arrange and enforce remedial work and give advice regarding matters that may affect the health and safety of occupants living in privately rented accommodation. The role includes assessing the suitability of Houses in Multiple Occupation for licensing and imposing penalties for non-compliance with housing legislation.
We have a dynamic, friendly and supportive team. The role will demand a sound knowledge of housing legislation and guidance, HHSRS, skills to successfully communicate requirements and influence standards and behaviour. A commitment to providing high standards of customer service and the skill and discipline to deliver this across a large and varied workload are also essential.
You will be qualified in a relevant discipline and have substantial relevant experience.
Flexible working arrangements in place.
