The Public Protection department at the City of York Council have three exciting opportunities to join the re-vamped Licensing Enforcement team.
About the role;
The role involves the traditional aspects of dealing with complaints about businesses breaching their licensing obligations and completing investigations which may result in formal enforcement action including revoking licences and prosecution in the most serious cases.
We will be driving a much more ‘hands on’ aspect to the role, whereby officers are ‘patrolling’ the area to pro-actively identify breaches/addressing problems ‘there and then’ and ensuring a rapid response when necessary. The various activities will also be performed throughout the week and weekend.
Examples of the work include:
Key skills and experience required;
There are three positions with different work patterns, which in brief are as follows:-
Officer 1 – 37 hours a week, Monday to Friday (Tuesday – Saturday every 4 weeks)
Officer 2 – 18.5 hours a week, Monday to Friday (Tuesday to Saturday every 4 weeks)
Officer 3 – 15 hours per week Friday and Saturday nights (into the early hours of the morning). These hours are condensed to provide a ‘week off’ every 8 weeks.
Please indicate which work pattern you are applying for in your application, you may apply for as many as you wish but successful candidates will only be offered one role.
This post will be subject to a Police Vetting request.
As this role is public facing, applicants will need to demonstrate, at interview, their competency to converse and provide advice and guidance to members of the public, in spoken English to CEFR level C2: Can express him/herself spontaneously at length with a natural conversational flow, avoiding or backtracking around any difficulty so smoothly that the person with whom they are conversing is hardly aware of it.
The Council is highly committed to investing in the talent and wellbeing of our staff and can offer a generous annual leave allowance, access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, comprehensive Health & Wellbeing initiatives and a reward package which recognises your contribution. We can offer flexible working practices, community engagement and volunteer activities and, as part of our commitment to you, promote continuous Learning & Development. In addition we also offer a growing range of discounts, rewards and savings.
