Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive, by making our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Because, we’re not just home to the UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind. Here’s where you can help decide a better future for us all.

The role

We have an exciting opportunity for you to join Camden’s expanding private sector housing team.

Are you passionate about improving living conditions for residents? Are you enthusiastic to take an enforcement-based approach in your work? Are you looking to develop your experience in preparing legal bundles or Banning Orders? Would you like to join one of London’s leading private sector housing teams? If your answer is yes to any of these then you may be the kind of EHO we are looking for.

We are looking for a proactive and enthusiastic environment health practitioner, or a qualified graduate working towards their Chartered status, to join our Reactive team. You will be required to inspect properties in response to complaints, prepare enforcement notices and schedules of work, serve Civil Penalty notices and attend the first tier tribunal when necessary.

You will manage a mixture of reactive cases such as complaints about disrepair and investigate offences in relation to HMO’s. We will provide you with plenty of opportunities for training and to maintain your CPD requirements.

If you are motivated, professional in your approach with good organisational skills then Camden could be the place for you. You’ll be joining a friendly team committed to providing safe and healthy housing. At Camden we embrace teamwork and personal development and you will have the opportunity to develop your skills across a range of fascinating challenges.
