St Albans is a unique English Cathedral City with a colourful history which can be seen in the Roman remains and variety of beautiful architecture, heritage sites and conservation areas. Set within green belt, off the M25, A1M and M1 the District includes a cathedral, historic city centre and charming villages. Our refurbished offices are in the city centre near to the station (London St Pancras 20 minutes), shops and restaurants. In short it is a great place to live and work.

An in-depth knowledge of the Licensing Act 2003 and the Gambling Act 2005 is essential as are excellent communication skills in both written and spoken format.  A working knowledge of a licensing system (such as M3/assure, uniform or other related system) and an ability to manage projects and multiple conflicting demands is also required.

In addition to working within a great team and a comprehensive salary you will have access to:
