You will also assist in the implementation of strategies to address emerging statutory responsibilities and priorities, for example, related to energy performance certification and short-term letting.
It is essential that applicants hold a degree in Environmental Health or equivalent, and a REHIS Diploma in Environmental Health, or equivalent. You must also have a sound knowledge of current environmental health issues. In addition, you must have the ability to work to specific deadlines and possess excellent communication and IT skills.
