Your next role

It’s time for the next step.
You’ve earned it.

Fancying a change as we move out of summer? Looking for a new rewarding contract? Or perhaps you’re tired of hiring managers looking for decades of experience? I’ve got just the thing.

I’m working with a Warwickshire-based local authority that is looking for two Officers to join their team on an initial 3-month contract, which is likely to be extended beyond that. You’ll ideally be available to work 5 days a week and will be starting in December.

Key Responsibilities:

Environmental Protection Officer

  • Investigate and manage cases related to contaminated land and noise pollution
  • Work will also include planning applications, environmental permitting and air quality
  • Collaborate with stakeholders to enforce environmental regulations
  • Ensure compliance with statutory requirements
  • Issue Civil Penalty Notices where required.

Technical Officer

  • Focus on domestic nuisances such as fly-tipping and abandoned vehicles.
  • Initiate investigations and gather relevant evidence.
  • Collaborate closely with the Environmental Protection Officer to follow up on cases.
  • Play a vital role in maintaining environmental quality within the community.

Full Job Descriptions for both roles are available upon request.

What’s in it for me?

  • £30 - £35 per hour (Technical Officer)
  • £35 - £40 per hour (Environmental Protection Officer)
  • Flexible with personal/family commitments – whatever is best for you!
  • Hybrid working - 3 days on-site max

If you’re interested in this role, please contact Michael on 07821 680 247 or email with any enquiries.
