Full Time
Our client, a West London Borough Council, urgently needs a Senior Environmental Health Officer (POA level) to work within their Food Health and Safety Team until at least November 2017 (with a possibility of extension). The role will involve providing professional and technical advice to businesses and colleagues, responding to a range of enquiries, carrying out inspections and undertaking investigations. You will act as an authorised officer within your area of work and will take responsibility for enforcement-led casework.

You need to be highly motivated with unflagging enthusiasm, lots of initiative and positive ideas about new ways of working. You will need excellent interpersonal skills that allow you to establish effective working relationship as well as sound judgement and knowledge of relevant legislation. These skills will be used across a range of duties that include enforcement work relating to food hygiene, food standards, health and safety and infectious disease.

A proactive approach to a challenging case load is vital as is the ability to remain calm and focused whilst working under pressure. You must be proficient using IT systems and will be expected to prepare reports and statements of evidence in legal proceedings. You must also be prepared to attend court to give evidence on behalf of the council where necessary.

About the person

As a qualified Environmental Health Professional you'll have previous experience of food law enforcement and you will be particularly familiar in enforcing the provisions of the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations. However, equally as important will be your flexible and adaptable approach to your work and your capacity to absorb new knowledge quickly and efficiently.

The Council is looking to appoint immediately so do apply now if you have the skills and experience described above.
