The purpose of this role is to deliver high quality environmental regulatory services across West Suffolk with particular responsibility for private water supplies and environmental permitting.

Working as part of our highly experienced and busy team, you will be involved in a wide range of environmental protection work. The role carries out the Council's statutory responsibility for monitoring, reporting, responding to complaints/breaches and the regulation of Private Water Supplies and Environmental Permitting in West Suffolk.

An attention to detail, excellent interpersonal and communication skills are essential together with a strong customer service focus. You will be innovative, enthusiastic and committed to providing a high quality service and have an appreciation of the contribution that can be made to the wider environmental agenda. You will need to be motivated, flexible and committed to personal development and able to manage a large and varied workload.
