About residential services

We are delighted you are considering coming to join our residential services team within environmental health here at Windsor and Maidenhead. 

This is an exciting opportunity to come and join us on a journey to transform the residential services team, helping to ensure that residents health, safety and welfare is safeguarded and to deliver the council’s vision.

The team covers a varied and interesting workload, which includes all aspects of private sector housing, public health investigations including pest, drainage, caravan site licensing and mandatory and discretionary grant aid including disabled facility grants.

The roles will include investigating customer requests and complaints, assessing dwellings and the application of the housing health and safety rating system (HHSRS).  You will be encouraged and supported to take enforcement activity to achieve compliance with the legislation.  

As part of the council’s ambitious plans, we are offering a range of permanent and fixed term roles.  The fixed term team will focus on the implementation and extension of the houses in multiple occupation (HMO) licensing regime, proactive and reactive HMO inspections and addressing the current housing cases known to the service. 

If you are enthusiastic and self-motivated, have a sound environmental health and housing experience, or, are looking to take the next step in your career we would love to talk to you about these opportunities.

  • We have 70 licenced HMOs.
  • 696 HMOs on our premises database.
  • 56 caravan site licences.
  • We deal with 700 service requests a year.
  • 93 active disabled facility grants.

They all call for results focused individuals – people who can prioritise their own workload and contribute to the wider team function. Local authority experience would certainly be welcomed although not essential.

At the Royal Borough, we aim to provide an excellent customer service for every one of our residents – and to achieve that we rely on the exceptional work carried out by our staff.
