Community Safety and Principal Enforcement Officer

Hackney is London's most diverse and dynamic borough. Stretching from the edge of the City, to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, it is an area of rapid economic growth, particularly in the tech, media, fashion and other creative industries. Hackney has more green space than any other inner London borough, some of the capital's best schools, and first class transport connections, which combined with excellent local public services and a thriving arts, cultural and retail sector, are fast making it one of London's most popular areas to live, work and visit. The challenge for Hackney is to make sure that the borough's economic growth provides benefits for everyone who lives here, and to create opportunities that will transform the lives of local people.

This is a new role that has been created within our exciting newly designed Integrated Community Safety, Enforcement and Business Regulation Service. The new service has been formed following a cross cutting review of Enforcement Services and aims to deliver a joined up customer centric service that is both responsive to customer needs and also aims to prevent demand through adopting a strong Intelligence led approach to service delivery.

As a Community Safety and Principal Enforcement Officer, you will undertake a key role as part of this broader and more inclusive Enforcement Service. This revised service will deliver joined up, accountable and timely management of a wide range of enforcement duties in relation to community safety, Anti-Social Behaviour, Licensing (Premises, Alcohol and Highways), street scene and enviro crime including noise abatement, environmental enforcement (Fly tipping, Graffiti, Fly posting, and Littering etc.) and wider general public realm enforcement as required.

You will need a proactive approach, be driven and have excellent communication skills. You must be able to hold your own case load as a thorough investigator. You will work with a range of partner organisations and Community Action Panels (CAPs) and you will lead on local problem solving, initiatives and projects. You will be deployed on an area basis as a named contact for customers to understand and address localised problems, challenging and changing behaviours to contribute to the achievement of the Mayor’s priorities, Council’s corporate objectives.

Further you will be required to successfully pass security vetting through enhanced DBS checks.

At Hackney, we go that extra mile for our people; we offer a work environment which is stimulating, fast moving and supportive, giving you the chance to use your skills and develop new ones within a high-profile organisation.
