Wirral is home to vibrant, energetic and engaged communities, people who take real ownership of their local area and are passionate about making Wirral a better place. The council and its partners have pledged to #BeTheDifference.


We’ve got ambitious targets to meet by 2025. To achieve everything we have promised to our residents, we need people who are driven and ready to deliver the very best for our communities - #BeTheDifference.


Wirral Environmental Health Service has been redesigned and modernised to deliver a highly efficient service that is customer focused and prides itself on continual improvement. Whilst working within a generic team, officers develop the specialisms required to meet the needs of the community.


You should be enthusiastic about change, customer focused and willing to adapt to new challenges as the service evolves to meet changing customer and service demands. We have opportunities for full time permanent and fixed term contracts.


You will be undertaking Food Safety enforcement duties and must be in a position to be authorised in accordance with Food Law Code of Practice competency framework requirements with minimal delay. You will also be required to support the team in other areas of Environmental Health and undertake COVID compliance work.


The ability to work as part of a team to support colleagues across the Council is important.


There will be training opportunities to enable the successful candidates to work in other fields of Environmental Health as future service demands dictate.


The candidates must be willing to work outside of normal office hours for which an additional payment will be made. The successful candidate may apply to be considered for essential car user allowance.


Wirral Borough Council is a great place to work and we are looking for talented people with a passion for results to come and join our team.
