An exciting opportunity has arisen to work in the Environmental Health Service of Herefordshire Council covering Hereford City and its beautiful rural surroundings including the County towns of Leominster, Ross-on-Wye, Ledbury and Kington. We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Environmental Health Practitioner / Housing Surveyor with experience in housing regulation (including use of the housing health and safety rating system (HHSRS)) or a Graduate Environmental Health Practitioner who is keen to take on challenges and embrace future opportunities within Environmental Health starting in the field of housing regulation.
