Assistant Director Port Health Services
City of London Corporation
The London Port Health Authority (LPHA) is integral to the work of the City of London Corporation. As one of the largest Authorities of its kind in the UK, we’re tasked with all port health matters including food and feed imports, infectious disease control, ship sanitation, food hygiene and safety, environmental protection, and shellfish sampling. Our work is essential to the wellbeing of the UK’s communities – and as Assistant Director, you’ll be at the heart of this.
Leading a high-performing team, we’ll look to you to lead, develop and manage the services of the LPHA. With a focus on the major ports of Tilbury and London Gateway, plus the Launch Service, you’ll see to it that our resources are being used as efficiently as possible, and you’ll ensure we’re meeting local, national, and international priorities.
This is a great opportunity to tackle everything from implementing the relevant legislation and authorising enforcement actions, through to handling the knock-on effects of Brexit, so we’re looking for someone who brings an adaptable approach to every challenge. As a Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner or Official Veterinarian (or the ability to achieve this), you’ll have experience in the regulatory sectors. If you have an understanding of Port Health and imported food controls that would be helpful, and you will enjoy building strong stakeholder relationships at every level.
In return, we can offer you a generous benefits package plus a fascinating career path.
