Job Description

Seven Resourcing are looking for a temporary Environmental Health Officer to work in Northampton. This position is initially for a period of 6 months and is paying £40.00 per hour (paid to you via an umbrella company).

The role:

To improve housing conditions in Northampton's private sector - and effect a positive and sustained step change in the behaviour of landlords and letting agents - through advice, licensing, risk-based interventions and intelligence-led enforcement action.

To provide an efficient, high quality advice, information and enforcement service for houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) in order to ensure that all HMOs are well managed, safe and habitable and that all licensable HMOs are licensed.

To make optimum use of civil penalties, rent repayment orders and licensing fees to support Northampton's intelligence-led approach to housing enforcement and maximise the Housing Enforcement Team's impact in tackling criminal, rogue and irresponsible landlords.

Key Responsibilities:

* Develop and maintain close working relations with a wide range of other services and organisations in order to facilitate the flow of information, encourage joint working and cooperation, achieve the prompt resolution of complex problems and ensure that, even when an input is required from a number of teams, service delivery is always well coordinated and the service user is kept fully informed of developments.

* Actively encourage members of the public and other stakeholders to provide the Housing Enforcement Team with information about the way in which properties are being managed, used or maintained, in order to help the Council to identify, investigate and prosecute offences under the Housing Act 2004 and other legislation.

* Work collaboratively and proactively with the Tenancy Relations Officer and the Housing Options and Advice Team to ensure the delivery of efficient, joined-up services that tackle harassment and unlawful eviction, prevent homelessness, deal effectively with disrepair and improve the management and standard of private rented housing.

* Arrange, negotiate and secure appropriate access to land and premises - obtaining warrants of entry when needed - in order to gather intelligence and determine what action the Council will take in relation to the investigation and prosecution of offences.

* Undertake a range of activities (including property inspections, HHSRS assessments, the drafting of schedules of work and the preparation and serving of notices, interviewing people under caution, executing warrants of entry and carrying out works in default) and prepare cases for prosecution or the imposition of civil penalties.

* Work collaboratively with the Housing Enforcement Manager to ensure that all notices are written, served and enforced in a correct and timely manner, and the process for carrying out works in default operates in a way that ensures the nuisance and disrepair are properly addressed and the Council is able to recover the full cost of the works.

Applicant Requirements:

* Qualifications: Qualified EHO with a Degree in Environmental Health.

* Experience: 2+ years working within a similar role.

* Compliance: Current DBS check.

* Travel: Clean UK driving license with the ability to commute to and from work independently.

* Hours: 37.5 hours p/w.
