  1. Are you enthusiastic, highly motivated with Environmental protection experience?

    It is an exciting time to join Sevenoaks District Council's Environmental Health Team. We have recently brought our service ‘back in house’ and are looking forward to a bright future under new management and renewed direction.

    The Role

    Within this role you will be expected to independently manage a varied caseload covering all aspects of environmental protection. You will have a thorough understanding of statutory nuisance legislation, anti-social behaviour legislation, complaint investigation processes and have experience responding to planning and licensing consultations.

    We are particularly interested to hear from candidates with experience and/ or qualifications in one or more Environmental Protection specialisms such as Acoustics, Contaminated Land, Air Quality or Private Water Supply Regulation.

    You should be well organised with a commitment to accuracy and meeting deadlines together with a desire to develop.

    As a committed team player you need good written and verbal communication skills. Dealing with the public is an important part of the role and you must be dedicated to providing high quality customer service.

    Skills, Knowledge and Experience:

    • A Levels or Equivalent
    • Full Driving License with a vehicle available for work purposes
    • A minimum of two years’ experience in a similar role or a BSc/ MSc in Environmental Health

    Why Sevenoaks?

    Sevenoaks is situated in West Kent, has excellent links into London and boasts historic towns and beautiful countryside with good schools and leisure facilities. It faces substantial development pressures and a key challenge for planning and conservation is to provide for new development while continuing to protect the historic and natural environment.

    We are an award winning Council having achieved the Guardian Public Service Awards 2016 for being financially self-sufficient, are one of the few organisations in the country to retain its Platinum Investors in People status. We were voted LGC Council of the Year 2017 and won a Pushing the Boundaries of Innovation award in 2018.
