Environmental Health Officer
Grade 13 £35,136
37 Hours Full Time

Hambleton District Council is looking for an Environmental Health Officer to work in the Council’s Environmental Health service in the Residential Team.

You will be working within a team of officers that undertake a wide range of duties including the investigation of noise, nuisance, pollution and public health enquiries, responding to planning and licensing consultations and private sector housing enforcement including caravan site licensing.

The successful candidate will be a confident, self-motivated professional with excellent enforcement and organisational skills. You must have good communication and negotiation capabilities as you will be dealing with a mixed audience of residents, landlords, partner agencies and other stakeholders. You will be required to work independently while supporting the team members to achieve the broader outcomes of the team.

The successful candidate must have a full Driving License, be able to work out of hours from time to time and will be given the opportunity to undertake ongoing training and development.

Applications are invited from candidates who are qualified Environmental Health Officers with experience of dealing with statutory nuisance and housing standards enforcement and be competent to undertake inspections using the HHSRS. However applications will be considered from officers who are working towards their professional status (N.B. You will be paid at a lower grade until professional status is reached within an agreed time period- this can be discussed further at interview).

You will be based in Civic Centre, Northallerton, with options for home working. Employees benefit from car free parking and discounts on the Council’s Leisure Centres.

In the County of North Yorkshire, Hambleton is recognised for the quality of life on offer in its picturesque market towns and major villages of Bedale, Thirsk, Great Ayton, Stokesley and Easingwold. The main town and administrative centre is Northallerton.
