The Public Protection department at the City of York Council have an exciting opportunity to join the re-vamped Licensing Enforcement team in a Senior role (Friday afternoon/night, Saturday night).
About the role;
The role will help embed the changes and ensure consistency of approach between the day time and night time enforcement teams whilst being ‘hands on’ in the role itself.
You will be ensuring procedures are correctly followed in dealing with complaints about businesses breaching their licensing obligations, and in completing investigations which may result in formal enforcement action including revoking licences and prosecution in the most serious case.
You will also 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 be performed throughout weekend.
Examples of the work include:
Key skills and experience required;
18 hours per week Friday afternoon into the early hours of Saturday morning, and Saturday night into the early hours of the Sunday morning. The hours are condensed to provide a ‘weekend off’ every 8 weeks.
Full details are available in the recruitment pack.
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.
