Senior Environmental Enforcement Officer

Ref: 53690

Something exciting is happening at the London Borough of Lewisham. We’re creating a whole new Commercial Operations Service in our Public Realm division. The new Service will help us meet the community's needs and achieve our strategic priorities through an ambitious programme of work. If you’re a capable Environmental Enforcement professional, join our newly created team. 

Solving environmental crime. Delivering enforcement actions. Contributing to policy. As a Senior Environmental Enforcement Officer, you’ll be supporting your manager with all this and more. It’s a chance to do something great for Lewisham by taking on a range of tasks – everything from prosecuting offenders and issuing penalty notices for littering to preparing complex correspondence and reports.

At this level, you’ll also have the task of supervising your team. It means answering their queries, conducting briefings and meeting them on site if necessary. It’s a great way to build your leadership skills as you monitor the day-to-day environmental enforcement of public areas throughout the borough. However, you’ll need to bring experience in all aspects of environmental enforcement to be considered. 

We’re looking for a professional with a clear, logical mind. Someone who knows about relevant legislation and how to work to deadlines. Organised and used to working with a wide range of people, you have good communication skills. If you also have a valid driving licence, we’d like to hear from you. Apply now.
