As a forward-thinking council, we have declared a climate emergency, with the aim of improving the environment for today’s communities and for the benefit of future generations. As an Energy Efficiency Officer within our Environmental Health Service, you can make your own powerful contribution to Westminster’s residents by helping us reduce our carbon emissions.

Working predominantly with rental properties in the private sector, you will play a vital role in this by ensuring energy efficiency improvements are being made in a vast array of properties, supporting work to alleviate fuel poverty. With your remit extending from Listed properties in Conservation Areas through to mixed tenure properties and pre-1900s stock, every day will present you with plenty of variety! Furthermore, we will provide you with the support you need to further your knowledge and career prospects.

On a day-to-day basis, you will work with landlords, managing agents, residents and tenant groups to implement and enforce legislation and the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards regulations. Raising awareness of the need to meet these expectations, you will be a trusted advisor to a wide variety of stakeholder groups, ensuring a fair outcome for all. Whether visiting properties to conduct inspections, advising residents of their rights or working with landlords to ensure they understand the steps that need to be taken – and then taking appropriate enforcement actions if the relevant measures aren’t put in place – this is deeply interesting work that will enable you to improve our residents’ quality of life, and the environment.
