Job Details and Requirements

This is an excellent opportunity to join the successful Joint Environmental Health Service which delivers services across the rural districts of both Bolsover and North East Derbyshire District Councils.

The post is based within the Housing and Public Health Team of the Joint Environmental Health Service.

The Environmental Health Technical Officer role covers duties around private sector housing, HMO Licensing, domestic noise and other nuisance complaints, public health matters such as drainage, destitute funerals, filthy and verminous premises, gypsies and travellers.  Ideally you will have recent experience of undertaking housing inspections, investigating domestic nuisance complaints and associated enforcement activities including the preparation of reports, notices and evidence gathering.
