We are looking for an experienced and dedicated trading standard professional to join our busy team of trading standards and licensing officers here at the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead.

This role will involve the enforcement of the full range of trading standards legislation and will take the lead in food law, so relevant qualifications, knowledge and experience will be required.

You will need excellent communication skills, be a team player able to work with a range of partners, and be able to plan and carry out your own workload.

We offer flexible working and a range of other benefits, and with Royal Ascot, Legoland, Windsor Castle and a host of other local attractions we can provide a vibrant and diverse working environment and a place to grow and develop your career.
