There is currently an opportunity for an officer to join the Technical Support Team in the Environmental Health Service in a newly created post - Compliance and Technical Support Officer.

The Environmental Health Service is a busy front line service which carries out a wide range of functions including in the Residential Team the investigation and control of noise, pollution and statutory nuisances, inspection of permitted processes and contaminated land and private sector housing enforcement as well as consultations in relation to licensed premises and planning applications and enforcement of standards at caravan sites; and in the Commercial Team enforcement of food safety, workplace health and safety, private water supplies legislation, infectious disease control and the licensing of premises for the purposes of animal welfare. The Council’s Safety Advisory Group is also administered and operated from the service. As well as these core functions a significant part of the work of the Service is now taken up by the response to Coronavirus including the responsibility for enforcing the Coronavirus restriction regulations and investigating clusters and outbreaks of Covid-19 in the district working with North Yorkshire County Council.

The Technical Support Team is the hub of the service providing a vital customer service role and dealing with a range of contacts from members of the public, business owners, other local authorities and agencies, Government departments and professional bodies.

The team provides technical and specialist administrative support to the Service in a busy and varied environment.

The successful candidate will be confident, self-motivated and be able to work independently and cooperatively to support the officers in the service.

The candidate will have good ICT skills and be competent in the use of the ICT systems.

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 may already have experience in a technical support or compliance officer role, who are enthusiastic, positive and are ready to work in a busy front line service.

Although this is a temporary post there may be an opportunity for the successful candidate to enter an apprenticeship to train as an Environmental Health Officer at the end of their contract.
