If so, we have two vacancies for Senior Technical Officers, in our Environmental Protection team, which has responsibilities for matters such as pollution control, statutory nuisances, public health funerals, air quality, contaminated land, consultation on planning applications, and licensing applications as well as public health related activities.

We work flexibly in Warwick, and support working at home or flexible working patterns that enable you to tailor your working and personal life. We provide the equipment and tools to enable you to work flexibly, and in return ask you to use that flexibility to be creative and ambitious in the services we deliver.

You will be expected to be based in the office on at least one day a week (Mon-Fri on a rota basis), attend meetings as required and be available for the occasional out of hours work, sometimes at the weekend to respond to complaints. (Approximately 10 times a year).
