To begin with, we have been asked to assist with their recruitment drive to hire Port Health Officers. They are looking to recruit approximately 60 staff members, mainly through a permanent hire process but there will also be options for Fixed Term Contracts and temporary agency contract appointments. Given the scale of the requirement there will be a lot of flexibility for full time, part time or flexible hours arrangements. Below is an outline of the posts with salary bandings:

The roles would be well suited to those from an environmental health background, anyone with previous Port Health experience would be ideal.
