Whilst Community & Civil Enforcement are mainly the patrolling team engaging with the community and residents, and educating or enforcing where necessary. They investigate fly-tipping, dog related issues, abandoned vehicles and littering amongst a variety of other issues they come across. They report findings to the relevant departments within the Council for action or action themselves via issuance of Fixed Penalty Notices for Environmental Crime offences or Penalty Charge Notices for off-street parking offences.

Both teams work closely in providing an efficient service for the community.

The successful candidate will provide support to front line officers by gathering intelligence through initial enquiries, which will support ongoing investigations.

As a highly motivated individual you will bring a fresh and innovative approach to the team. Your positive attitude will contribute towards a high standard of customer service, which the teams prides itself on.

You should be self motivated to work both autonomously and as part of a team and able to multi task across a range of disciplines.

A qualification in respect of Environmental Crime and Licensing would be desirable, but not essential as full training will be provided.

In return, we offer flexible working, homeworking, development opportunities, pension scheme and free car parking. We are also located close to the train station
