As an Environmental Health Officer, you can make your own powerful contribution to people and businesses across Westminster.

This is a city of stories and, in this role, you’ll prioritise our communities. Working to proactively identify areas of risk to the public, responding to community concern, and prioritising the most vulnerable in our society, you’ll deliver front-line, customer facing support to the widest range of Westminster residents and businesses.

We have a variety of roles on offer across several different teams, part-time, as a job-share, or full-time. This is because we want the best people for our roles and we recognise that sometimes those people aren’t available full-time.

Our Private Sector Housing team regulates unsafe housing in the private rented sector, with specialist teams looking at fire safety in high rise buildings, a S257 HMO enforcement team, a property licencing team, an HMO Enforcement Team and a Reactive service ensuring properties are well manged, responding to complaints, and issuing and enforcing HMO licenses.

Wherever you join us, you’ll play a part in ensuring millions of people have access to a clean, safe and quiet place to call home. You’ll carry out routine or unannounced visits and inspections to ensure people and businesses are complying with legislation, prioritising the health and wellbeing of our communities, and taking action to improve conditions through engagement, education and enforcement.

You’ll act a source of expert advice and guidance, ensuring that public health and reducing inequalities is at the heart of everything you do. You’ll help others develop their knowledge and expertise, communicating effectively across the council, and with the people your work touches.
