The borough of Basildon is alive with opportunity and has the ingredients to be one of the most successful and desirable places in the South East. As the largest economy in the Thames Estuary outside London, we are incredibly proud of what we have achieved but we are never complacent. We are driving inclusive, sustainable growth to provide opportunity and prosperity for local people and businesses, access to quality homes, vibrant town centres and an enhanced local environment.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and driven Licensing Officer to support the delivery of an efficient Licensing Service.  This will include using specialist licensing software; presenting applications to Committee and undertaking a range of compliance monitoring and enforcement activities.

You must be able to demonstrate your ability to work under pressure to meet tight deadlines, with an ability to prioritise and manage your own workload.  You must have the ability to be able to work as part of our team as well as on your own initiative.  You will be expected to have a sound knowledge of legal practice in relation to licensing issues and represent the service in a positive, professional manner coping well with pressure.  The role requires excellent verbal communication, negotiation and interpersonal skills, including the ability to present information to a wide range of internal and external customers as well as presenting at decision making panels for court and committees.  The post holder will need to be flexible to enable some working outside of office hours (paid overtime or time off in lieu).

If you would like to be part of Basildon’s success, we look forward to receiving your application.
