The working pattern for this position will ideally be 9am – 3pm, Monday – Friday.

Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils are committed to improving the quality of life for everyone living in, working in and visiting east Suffolk. Already a progressive and successful partnership, we are in the process of combining our two authorities to create the largest District Council in the country, delivering vital services to those who need them most. Our councils are an exciting place to work and a great place to make a real difference to people’s lives.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic Licensing Assistant to provide administrative support to the Licensing officers across both authorities.

The position would involve taking on the responsibility for processing Charitable Collection Permits, Lottery Registrations and Temporary Event Notices as well as supporting officers with the administration and enforcement of a broad range of licences for which the team is responsible including Hackney Carriage and Private Hire licensing.

You will be a good team player, have a caring attitude and good problem solving abilities. You will also have a working knowledge of office administrative practices and excellent customer care and communication skills.

In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development. We want you to stay with us for the long-term, so we will give you all the support we can to build a great career with our organisation. There is also a superb benefits package including flexible working options and purpose built brand new office accommodation, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.
