We are looking for an exceptional individual to undertake a range of environmental health activities for the Council, including inspections, monitoring, measurement, examinations, Local Air Quality Management, 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.

There’s 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.
