Enviro Crime Environment Officer

Grade PO1 £38,364 - £40,833 per annum.

Newham is an aspirational inner-city borough with great potential and a clear vision based on building wealth within the community. Proud to be one of the youngest and most diverse boroughs in the UK, 72% of our residents are from ethnically diverse communities, speaking over 220 languages.

Home to the Olympic Park, the London Stadium and other iconic landmarks, we are the fastest growing authority in the country with a population set to rise to over 370,000 by 2023. We were also hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, which drew stark attention to long-term inequalities arising from economic disadvantage, homes occupied by multiple generations of families, underlying health issues and poor air quality.

About the role

As a Enforcement Officer, you will undertake enforcement activity in order to tackle crime and anti - social behaviour across the Borough. The work is challenging and rewarding, responding to the requests and expectations for a cleaner and safer Borough where our residents choose to live, work and stay. Proactive patrols are undertaken on foot, cycle or motor vehicle, conducting investigations and enforcement action for breaches of relevant criminal legislation.

The job involves working directly with the Police, partner organisations and other council officers including those from Environmental Services, Youth Services, Planning Enforcement, Highways, Cleansing and Housing. 

Our overarching aim is enforcement, problem solving, behavioural change and community engagement.

About you

Excellent communication skills are an essential part of this role together with an enthusiasm and desire to improve the Boroughs environment for its residents and businesses. You must have the ability to patrol alone as well as working as a member of a team. You will undertake problem solving investigations, reassurance patrols and also join in multi-agency operations. You may face potentially confrontational situations but with your training and personal skills you will be able to resolve these successfully in a confident and understanding manner, while maintaining a high standard of ethics and professional conduct.

Experience of enforcement or regulatory work is useful, however it is not essential. You will undergo a comprehensive training programme and you will be mentored through your probation period. You must have the ability to undertake a wide range of duties. You will be working outdoor in all weathers and for long periods on foot, vehicle and cycle. As part of this role you will also be required to possess a full (manual) current driving license and to pass the Council’s driving test. You must also have the ability to use a range of technology including smart phones, radios and body worn cameras. Training will be provided for this equipment including the use of in house computer systems.
