Environmental Health Officer

Have you heard? We're doing things differently at Waikato District Council. We're overhauling our operations, breaking down hierarchy, smashing silos and improving community planning. We're cultivating an innovative learning culture, and pushing co-design when it comes to our community.

To make this change successful we need great people.

Our environmental health team is made up of six energetic and passionate people who value public health and are focused on delivering exceptional services to the Waikato community. There will be significant opportunities for the successful applicant to advance their career.

Are you one of them?

We seek an enthusiastic and experienced individual to join this team who will bring their expertise, patience and customer driven approach to help drive the team's business and deliver liveable, thriving and connected communities- our Councils Vision.

The ideal applicant will have a broad range of experience in environmental health/ food technology and be eligible to be recognized by MPI to verify food control plans and national programmes. You would ideally be suitable for appointment as a Food Safety Officer under the Food Act 2014.

To be successful in this role, you will need to have excellent customer relationship and communication skills, pay attention to detail and manage your time and work effectively. Your ability to interpret and understand legislation particularly knowledge of the Health Act, Food Act, Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act and Resource Management Act is essential.

While it is envisaged that the successful applicant will be based in our Ngaruawahia office, there is potential to work from our Tuakau office. In recognition for the skills and experience you will bring to Council, a competitive salary is offered.

Our head office is based in north Waikato's Ngaruawahia, just 10 minutes from Hamilton or just an hour or so from Auckland against the traffic. You've got the benefits of an easy commute, free parking, work-life balance, day off on your birthday, river walks and the chance to hit the Hakarimatas on your lunch break. What more could you want?
