The newly formed Somerset West and Taunton Council’s environmental health team is a busy, multi-disciplinary team covering health and safety, food safety, environmental protection and private sector housing. An exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and hardworking environmental health officer has become available within the team.

This post would suit an individual who has a particular specialism in private sector housing. However we would welcome an individual who would also like the challenge and variety of working in all areas of environmental health, therefore experience across the board would be beneficial.

You would be expected to be involved in Houses in Multiple Occupancy (HMO) licensing and the investigation and enforcement of private sector housing complaints under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System, while providing help and support to less experienced colleagues within the team. You will also be required to get involved in other areas of environmental health as necessary, and we would support any additional training/mentoring if required.

You will need to be an excellent team player, be competent to deal with complex case work and have good verbal and written communication skills. You will need to be organised and self-motivated. We are looking for applicants who can demonstrate an adaptable and flexible approach, a positive attitude and an ability to work on your own initiative.

The successful candidate will possess a degree in Environmental Health and have a certificate of registration by the Environmental Health Registration Board (EHRB).

We offer flexible and agile working, with excellent technology to support working in multiple locations.
