Public Protection Officer
37.0 Hours per Week
We have an excellent opportunity for a Public Protection Officer to join our experienced team of Environmental Health and Trading Standards professionals.
As Public Protection Officer, you will be working on projects, either on your own or in partnership, which reduce nuisance and criminal behaviours and improve community safety.
You will be working across the socially and economically diverse Borough of Solihull, and be responsible for the regulation of a range of community safety, anti-social behaviour and environmental compliance issues across the Borough’s public realm, business and retail areas.
