The main function of Environmental Health and Community Safety is to provide a safe, healthy and attractive environment for all those who live, work or visit the City of Exeter.

We are seeking to appoint a new Licensing Officer, to work in the small but very busy licensing team covering the full range of licensing functions, including alcohol, entertainment, gambling, private hire and hackney carriages, scrap metal dealers, house to house collections, lottery and street collections.

Working as part of a small specialist team we are looking to appoint an enthusiastic person to assist with the day-to-day work of the Licensing Team. This will involve having responsibility for various aspects of licensing and duties will include dealing with the initial applications, the preparation of licenses and permissions, provision of advice and guidance and the inspection of licensed premises and vehicles.

Ideally the successful candidate will have previous experience of the local authority licensing functions, particularly in regard to the Licensing Act 2003 and Gambling Act 2005.

The successful candidate will have the ability to prioritise, plan and manage their time effectively, demonstrating the ability to meet demanding deadlines. The successful candidate will also demonstrate excellent communication skills both written and orally to a range of audiences including the public. The service uses Uniform software, so experience in this is advantageous but not essential.

The role will require some out of hours and weekend working and applicants must be committed to that level of flexibility.
