COMPLIANCE & ENVIRONMENT OFFICER

37 hrs per week – Salary scale £28,785 to £30,507 pa

(with a discretionary range to £32,029 pa)

A new and exciting opportunity has arisen for the dual role of ‘Compliance & Environment Officer’.  The duties and responsibilities will be varied in order to deal with all aspects of the Council’s compliance – from writing or updating risk assessments for a wide range of day to day operational risks to carrying out regular audits and periodic checks, as well as overseeing compliance of projects.  A significant part of the role will be to work with other stakeholders, community groups and event organisers reviewing event management plans for events held on Council land.

Witney Town Council has recently joined other Council’s in declaring a climate emergency and has committed to the vision of carbon neutrality by 2028 at the latest.  A public meeting has already been held and a Council Working Party has been established in order to draw up a strategy to act on the vision of carbon neutrality by 2028.  The Compliance and Environment Officer will play an important part in realising this vision.

The right candidate will need to have good communication skills, be able to work independently as well as part of a team where we all work together to progress the Council’s services and facilities. Applicants should have previous experience in a similar role and be able to have a flexible approach.  Much of the role involves the ability to jump from different tasks quickly and efficiently – prioritising the work to meet deadlines and taking on ad-hoc research.

Benefits include: competitive salary, automatic enrolment into the Local Government Pension Scheme (subject to eligibility), cycle to work scheme, supportive working environment – access to Employee Assistance Programme.  If you feel you are suitably qualified and able to meet the above criteria please contact the Town Hall for an application pack or download it below.
