Do you want to be part of a fast-paced and dynamic team working within the vibrant City of Cambridge?
Working in an iconic, diverse and expanding University City such as Cambridge, you will be joining an organisation where Environmental Health is an important and highly regarded Service. Here at Cambridge City, we work as one council to achieve our vision, promoting Cambridge as a great place to live, learn and work and where we care for the planet and the people of Cambridge.

We have two career opportunities for Environmental Health Officers, although we will welcome applications from Senior Technical Officers or Trainee Environmental Health Officers to join the Commercial & Licensing Team to undertake a range of duties.
Food safety will be a key aspect of your varied workload as well as the team covering health & safety, infectious disease control, statutory nuisance, licensed premises and taxi licensing to name a but a few. You will also be involved in a wide range of investigations and inspections in relation to Commercial activities within the City and supported by your Team colleagues, including both a Principal EHO and Senior Technical Officer(s).

Environmental Health Officer applicants and Senior Technical Officer applicants will already have a Degree or Diploma in Environmental Health and/ or the Higher Certificate in Food Control with the Food Inspection endorsement and Certificate of Registration of the Environmental Health Registration Board.

Trainee Environmental Health Officer applicants will join us either working towards EHORB having already completed (or nearly completed) a CIEH accredited degree in Environmental Health (or equivalent) and will be committed to fully completing their EHORB qualification by June 2020.
Alternatively you will join us having already completed (or nearly completed) a CIEH accredited degree in Environmental Health (or equivalent) and you will be ready to enrol on the Chartered Environmental Health Practitioners Programme in September 2019. Once fully qualified you will progress into an Environmental Health Officer role within the team. You will then be committed to work for Cambridge City Council for two years.

Maybe you have reached your personal and professional goals in your current role or are looking to take your next step, perhaps considering a sideways move in a really interesting and important area of work or to develop your career? The broad range of work you will encounter, in addition to the recently introduced career grade structure, means that Cambridge City can help provide you with the range and depth of experiences that really count. Could this role be your next step?

You will join us with the ability to interpret and apply legislation, communicate well at all levels, prepare and write reports and be able to present facts and negotiate in a balanced manner. As an Environmental Health Officer or Senior Technical Officer you will have experience of working with the public, carrying out investigations and inspections and a more in-depth knowledge of current legislation in food hygiene and health and safety law; licensing knowledge would be a bonus.

Interview Dates: 14th, 15th or 16th May 2019
