East Suffolk Council is an exciting place to work and a great place to make a real difference to people’s lives, delivering vital services to a quarter of a million people across East Suffolk.

We are looking for an exceptional individual to undertake a range of environmental health activities for the councils, including inspection of premises, monitoring, measurement, examinations, surveillance and sampling in respect of all areas of environmental protection including dealing with noise pollution and pollution to air, land and water to ensure compliance with statutory requirements.

Dealing with the public on a daily basis, sometimes in potentially stressful situations, you will also be required to work outside normal office hours on occasion to meet the demands of the service. You should hold either a degree or equivalent in environmental health or a degree level qualification in a relevant environmental protection related subject. You must also have a detailed knowledge of the regulatory requirements and guidance relating to environmental protection, pollution control, air quality, contaminated land and public health enforcement.

Relevant experience in environmental health or a closely related environmental protection discipline would be a distinct advantage, as will an understanding and experience of the IT systems which support the work of an environmental protection team.

In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development and 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.

Please read the job description and person specification before applying for this job.

For further information and an informal discussion, please contact Andrew Reynolds, Environmental Protection Manager on (01502) 523113.

Interview date: w/c 25 November 2019.
