Job Title: Senior Trading Standards Officer/Trading Standards Officer
Hours: 37 per week
Diversity: We are an inclusive employer and value a diverse workforce
Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to join one of the country’s leading Trading Standards Authorities?
Hertfordshire is home to over 1 million people and 70,000 businesses, including many of the country’s largest companies. It is a prosperous county with an excellent quality of life, having a variety of urban and rural communities from picturesque villages and market towns to large residential areas such as Watford, St Albans and Stevenage. It really does have something for everyone but also has excellent transport links if you want to travel further afield.
We work across the full range of Trading Standards functions to protect consumers from rogues and unsafe products, and to support businesses to get it right first time.
We’re not afraid of taking high profile cases or looking for alternate ways to bring about the best results for Hertfordshire consumers and businesses. To support this, we have an in-house legal team, financial investigator and intelligence officer.
Applicants must hold a recognised Trading Standards qualification (e.g. Diploma in Trading Standards, Diploma in Consumer Affairs, Diploma in Consumer Affairs and Trading Standards, Trading Standards Practitioner Diploma)
Flexible working and a good work-life balance are not recent innovations for us, it is how we have operated for years. We have good IT provision to support this and offer comprehensive training to keep you operating at the top of your game.
We’re looking for qualified TSO with professionalism, enthusiasm and a can-do attitude. Obviously, we expect you to have great communication skills, to be hard working and a team player but also able to work independently.
