If you would like a new challenge in a vibrant and diverse city where your contribution to public safety is valued then this opportunity would be perfect for you.

You will be responsible for a busy and varied workload in a friendly and supportive team, focussing on inspection programmes, responding to service requests, undertaking investigations and sampling. The role also involves the inspection of premises required to be registered for ear piercing, tattooing/accupuncture etc, processing of Export Health certificates and support to EHO’s/EHP’s in the team. Support may also be required for project work. Training will be provided where required.

We operate highly flexible working arrangements including flexitime, home working, optional office bases across the city, no core hours and compressed working options to enable you to effectively manage your work life balance.

You will need to be highly motivated, able to work well as part of a team, flexible and committed to personal development.

This post requires a EHRB registration or CIEH Registered Food Safety Practitioner status or equivalent; or willingness to enrol and complete a professional qualification leading to CIEH Registered Food Safety Practitioner status or equivalent. Development salary may apply whilst working towards registered status.

The post is covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (amended in 2013). Appointable candidates will be required to apply for an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

As a field/community-based worker, you would spend most of your time working in the wider community. Your role may involve client meetings, visits, project work and reports. You’ll mainly be working where the service users are, not where the ‘office’ is, but you will have workspace available for when you need it.
