In North Lanarkshire, we’re ambitious; for our residents and the people who work here, for our services and the people who provide them, and for our communities and partners. To help us to deliver upon our plans and aspirations, we are recruiting for 2 Environmental Health Officers.
As the 4th largest authority in Scotland, we want to do more and have ongoing plans to regenerate our communities, develop Smarter Homes, create employment and attract investment to North Lanarkshire by ensuring communities and our local environment are attractive places to live and work. The substantive office base for the team is Civic Centre, Windmillhill Street, Motherwell ML1 1AB, but you will operate on a hybrid working arrangement as part of a team responsible for the efficient delivery and administration of all pollution control, public health and general environmental health related functions covering a geographical area within North Lanarkshire.
The main duties of the post include undertaking investigation work measuring noise levels and assessing any potential noise impact; investigating general pollution control issues on a reactive basis; responding to statutory planning consultations in relation to air quality and contaminated land issues; investigation of public health complaints, including statutory nuisance investigation and assessment; assisting in the development of policies and strategies. The job requires that work is updated promptly on the Council’s database systems in line with the designated response times.
Whilst it is essential that qualified Environmental Health Officers hold the REHIS Diploma in Environmental Health, or its equivalent, we are also keen to receive applications from degree qualified students who are sitting these professional examinations in September 2023. You must have a sound knowledge of current pollution control, public health and environmental protection and be able to demonstrate experience in pollution control work or environmental health. In addition, you must have the ability to work to specific deadlines and possess excellent communication and IT skills. A current driving licence is essential. REHIS membership is desirable.
The successful candidate will be required to participate in an out-of-hours standby service.
Interviews will be held week commencing 4th September 2023.
