The City of Edinburgh Council is a predominantly urban Local Authority with a population of approximately 500,000. Edinburgh is a popular tourist destination with visitors coming to see the city’s museums, markets and monuments as well as some of the most famous festivals in the world. Providing for the population and visitors requires services and facilities that meets their needs including entertainment, restaurants, bars and cafes. Edinburgh is an important financial centre and is home to a number of universities and colleges and some manufacturing.

There can be few places more interesting than Edinburgh to practice Environmental Health.  Are you the right person for our service?
