Creating a safer future together
We're finding innovative ways to improve efficiencies across Council, so we back people who bring their A-game, think differently, and ask questions because they're curious. Here you can carve out a career path that plays to your talents, and we'll provide the platform for you to shine.
About the role
This is a genuine opportunity for the right person to make their mark. Reporting to the Local Laws Ranger Manager, your objective is to reduce environmental health risks within the communities and increase the capacity of community members to promote and carry out 'healthy living practices'.
You will play a pivotal role in ensuring Council improves health conditions by maintaining public health and environmental standards and making communities safe for both people and animals.
You will take responsibility for the enforcement of relevant by-laws relating to environmental health and animal control which will include supporting the day-to-day animal control practices for Council in enforcement, education, and animal management issues.
We are looking for a person who can challenge the status quo, who will ask the tough questions, and has a true passion for making our communities safer. Ideally, you will have a certificate III in Aboriginal Environmental Health or related discipline, and if you have previous experience working within the Aboriginal communities and management of animals then we would love to hear from you!
We're a passionate bunch and we pride ourselves in creating a culture that motivates our people to deliver exceptional results. We know that our people have a wide range of goals and ambitions and so we offer a wide range of benefits to suit you!
If this sounds like an opportunity for you, then don't delay get in touch and apply today!
