Are you looking for a new career to start the New Year? Then look no further as Halton Borough Council has an exciting opportunity for a Licensing Officer to join its dedicated Legal Services Licensing Department.
You will be one of two Licensing Officers responsible for processing all licences, permits and consents issued by the Licensing Department and for providing advice and assistance to the public, elected members and current and prospective licence holders. This includes manning the public counter when it is reopened, taking and processing payments and carrying out DBS checks. You will also support the Licensing Manager in developing and improving licensing procedures and with providing statistical and financial information. The team also comprises a Taxi Licensing Enforcement Officer and two Solicitors.
