Senior Trading Standards Officer
Salary: £36,371 – £40,578
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s Primary Authority Team is expanding, and we want you to join us!
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Trading Standards Service has a nationally recognised Primary Authority team, with over 100 Primary Authority clients including many major household names, the majority of whom have joined us through recommendation. Its team members sit on several national groups, including the National Food Standards and Information Focus Group, and are known for their expertise in Food Standards. There is a strong collaboration between our Primary Authority advisers and those in Peterborough City Council’s Environmental Health and Licensing teams, delivering a streamlined advice service across all three disciplines under the ‘Regulatory Companion’ umbrella, and it is a particularly exciting time to join the team as we look to explore growth opportunities in those wider fields. If you have expertise in Food Standards and a strong track record in Primary Authority advice, we’d love to hear from you.
The ability to work from home day to day means you can be based virtually anywhere in the country provided you are happy to visit clients at their business premises at their request from time to time and occasionally meet up with team members for collaboration or training purposes. You’ll be the primary point of contact for your clients enabling you to build in-depth knowledge about each of their businesses – their drivers and their challenges - allowing you to build a relationship of trust. You’ll also look to bring additional businesses on board, and we have some great opportunities to explore in terms of growing our business base.
You’ll come to the team with an existing passion for Primary Authority, recognising the tremendous benefits it offers to businesses and local authorities alike, and also with the flexibility that some of our clients require to meet their deadlines. The ability and confidence to provide informed, sound guidance, even on the greyer areas of law, will be vital given that many of our clients are at the forefront of sector change and your record keeping will be impeccable.
You’ll be joining an energised, dynamic team who are mutually supportive of one another ensuring that you will quickly feel part of the team.
