Contract Details: Fixed Term for 16 months
On successful completion of the apprenticeship you will be appointed to one of the three specialist areas on a permanent basis.

Darlington Borough Council seeks to appoint a new Regulatory Compliance Officer Apprentice to support the growth, development and future vision of Trading Standards, Private Sector Housing and Licensing services in Darlington.

These three services are essential in protecting the public while promoting economic growth to provide a safe and vibrant community.

This is an exciting new role requiring a hardworking, self-motivated and enthusiastic individual who is able to combine study with work place attachments in the specialist areas. In return we will provide you with an opportunity to develop your career under the management of our skilled and experienced staff, whilst earning, learning and achieving a nationally recognised qualification at the same time.

About the role
You will receive our full support to undertake the Level 4 Apprenticeship in Regulatory Compliance in accordance with the Apprentice training framework. This will include support to complete any required records and to pass the end point assessment.

You will assist Trading Standards, Private Sector Housing and Licensing as they deal with service requests from across the Borough of Darlington.

Within these specialist areas you will learn how to tackle rogue trading, ensure that consumer goods are safe and that businesses operate fairly. You will also learn how to inspect licensed premises, investigate breaches of legislation and submit files for prosecution.

Working in housing, you will help vulnerable tenants with their poor quality and unsafe housing conditions. In addition you will give advice and assistance to landlords, license properties and carry out a very varied, interesting and challenging work load. No two days will be the same!

Within all three work areas you will undertake projects, provide assistance with regulatory legislation where appropriate and ensure information is recorded accurately on our corporate databases.

The role will also afford you with an opportunity to develop skills in providing witness statements to a standard that can be used in court as evidence.

About you
You should have:
- 3 A Level grades A, B or C or equivalent in relevant subjects
- GCSE pass at Grades A to C (or equivalent) in Maths and English language

Applicants should be able to demonstrate an awareness of the work carried out by Regulatory Services within local authorities.

The successful applicant will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check.

For detailed information on this role, please refer to the Job Description and Person Specification.
