Your next role

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

Making a difference in your community has never been (or felt) more rewarding.

A West Midlands-based local authority is looking for you to join their Food Safety team on an initial 3-month contract to start in April.

They are ideally after someone full-time, however, are open to a minimum of 3 days a week to job share with another Officer.

Subject to funding and workload levels, it is likely to be extended beyond this.

What will I be doing?

  • Conducting inspections of food establishments
  • Enforcing food safety regulations.

You’ll ideally be someone who understands the FSA Code of practice and is fully food competent with up-to-date CPD.

What’s in it for me?

  • £33-£40 per hour DOE – equivalent to an annual salary ranging from £60,000 to £72,000 (if doing 37 hours a week)
  • 2-3 days working from home
  • 3-month rolling contract with the likelihood of extension
  • Flexible working – whatever works best for you, they are understanding of personal/family commitments etc.
