Environmental Information Officer

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Ashford Borough Council – a local authority like no other in the county – for an Environmental Information Officer with a specific focus on COVID-19 laws and regulations.

The role will involve assimilating and guiding the Environmental team and other internal stakeholders and externally with businesses, communities and voluntary groups across the Ashford borough to advise on hazard and control measures for COVID-19; providing general information in response to requests and enquiries received. There will also be a focus on high risk places, locations and communities. You will ensure appropriate control measure are adopted and maintained by escalating enforcement action, as required, in accordance with relevant procedures. There will be a requirement to conduct inspections and site visits and respond to H&S requests and investigate accidents/occupational disease notifications.

This would suit an EHO or Technical Officer with previous environmental experience, a candidate who has public health experience or candidates with H&S qualifications – IOSHH – with an understanding of risk analysis, particularly within infectious control. An immediate start is available.

A driving licence and vehicle is an essential requirement to fulfil the role.
