Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Trading Standards Service has an excellent opportunity for the right individual to join our dynamic team as a Trading Standards Officer.

The ideal candidate will have worked in a regulatory field, and have demonstrable experience working in partnership with other regulators and organisations. You will need the ability to build rapport with business and consumers to be successful in this post, as well as an ability to use your initiative to problem solve. You will be expected to undertake both proactive and reactive regulatory activities.

Development of staff is something that is important to us, and necessary to maintain competence, and to enable the Service to meet future challenges, consequently a willingness to undertake training is essential.
