  • Responding to Construction & demolition complaints and enquiries including Control of Pollution Act work
  • Delivering Environmental Protection projects such as multi-agency waste enforcement operations and local air quality projects
  • Event & festival noise monitoring

There will also be opportunity to assist with other areas of Environmental Health work such as Local Air Quality. This post offers real personal and professional development to the successful applicant.
