Job introduction

An enthusiastic Fair Trading Officer is required to join the Trading Standards Team.

For an informal discussion, please contact (Jim Whitelegg/John Peerless) - (Regulatory Services Manager/Principle Trading Standards Officer) on 01273 292438/2486.

About the role

We are looking to recruit a Fair Trading Officer to undertake a range of Trading Standards duties to secure a fair and safe trading environment. This is achieved through advice, investigation of complaints and enforcement of statutory criminal and civil provisions to ensure that the public are not put at risk from the sale and/or use of unsafe or dangerous products and to ensure their economic wellbeing is maintained by protecting them from illegal or unfair trading practices.

Some of the work the team has been involved with recently includes tackling illicit and counterfeit tobacco/alcohol and cold calling scams.

Additional information

Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.

Work Permits: we may be able to obtain a Work Permit for this post but this is subject to meeting the requirements of the UK Border Agency's Points-based Immigration System.

From 6 April 2011 the Home Office has placed a permanent restriction on the number of migrant workers that all Tier 2 (General) Sponsors can recruit. Due to the restrictions we cannot guarantee that individuals that meet the requirements of the Points-based Immigration System will be issued with clearance to obtain work permits.

Company information

We welcome applications from all sections of the community but particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as male or trans as these groups are currently under-represented in our Directorate workforce.

As part of Brighton & Hove City Council's ongoing commitment to redeployment, please note that this vacancy may be withdrawn at any stage of the recruitment process, without prior notice if a suitable redeployee (internal employee at risk of redundancy) is identified.
