This is an exciting opportunity to join Adur & Worthing Councils working in a joint service across two local authorities located on the South Coast. We are seeking a Licensing Specialist to join our busy Licensing Unit within our Public Health & Regulation Team.
The successful candidate will be a confident, highly motivated and forward thinking individual.

We offer flexible working conditions and benefits that can be tailored to suit you - from our essential car user scheme, parental leave policies through to employee discounts, we are committed to supporting you throughout your career with us.
The post will be based in Worthing, however the Councils operate flexible working practices including home working.
