The Licensing Team at North Kesteven are a busy team dealing with the full range of
licensing functions including alcohol and entertainment, taxi and private hire vehicles,
late night refreshments, gambling and the licensing of charitable collections and scrap
metal dealers.

You will need to be able to effectively communicate with the general public, applicants,
partnership agencies and Members of the Council in a tactful and confident manner and
be able to demonstrate a practical approach to problem solving with good negotiation and
mediation skills.

Practical experience in enforcement is required and a qualification in licensing would be
advantageous. The postholder will be required, in conjunction with the Licensing
Technical Officer, to take a leading role in the day to day management of all aspects of
the taxi vehicle inspection scheme, including training of garage staff, maintaining
inspection standards across the District, conducting spot checks for quality control as
agreed with the Licensing Team Leader and dealing with any complaints arising out of
the process.

A full current driving licence and use of own car for the role is required. A flexible approach
is essential. The postholder must be a good team worker, self-motivated, self-disciplined
and be committed to our customer orientated approach.
