Mendip District Council is an innovative authority set in the Mendip Hills of Somerset. The council offices are modern with good facilities and to complement this we offer flexible and remote working.

We are looking for a bright and enthusiastic, motivated person to join our Community Health Service. This is a great opportunity for a team player to make a real difference to protecting public health and improving the wellbeing of the residents of Mendip.

You will be required to inspect, raise awareness and enforce Environmental Health & Licensing legislation in all premises as necessary, but in particular undertake programmed food hygiene, health & safety and public safety inspections and investigations. You will need a pragmatic “can do” attitude and to be empathetic and supportive but also demonstrate a robust approach to enforcement when required. You will be a clear and accurate record keeper and use your knowledge and intuition to influence duty-holders ensuring compliance.

 You must:

  • Compliant as Authorised Officer as defined by FSA Code of Practice Competency Framework
  • Have excellent interpersonal and organisational skills
  • Be able to deliver high quality customer service
  • Be confident in working with businesses, partners and colleagues
  • Be a confident team player
