£41,418 - £43,421 per annum plus £3000 Market Forces Supplement

We are seeking an enthusiastic, confident and self-motivated individual for the Senior Environmental Health Officer role in our busy Private Sector Housing team.

Warwick district contains a diverse range of housing types in a mixed urban and rural setting and is widely recognised as an excellent place to live and work.

We pride ourselves on improving housing standards by working with landlords but will use the full range of enforcement powers when required.

We have a large number of HMOs and have recently introduced an Additional Licensing scheme.

You will lead a team of 3 officers dealing with HHSRS complaints, tenancy issues, HMOs and empty properties as well as having your own active caseload. 

You will act as lead officer for enforcement work and have significant experience and thorough knowledge of current housing legislation as it relates to the private rented sector.

You will have a degree in Environmental Health, or an equivalent qualification, as well as professional registration with EHORB/CIEH. You will also have a minimum of 5 years post qualification experience in Private Sector Housing, and you will possess effective communication and leadership skills. 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undertake a Basic DBS check.

This is a hybrid post enabling a mix of home and office working combined with a good deal of site inspections.

If you have any questions or wish to have an informal discussion, please contact Paul Hughes, Private Sector Housing Manager on (01926) 456729 or email paul.hughes@warwickdc.gov.uk
