Health Services Manager
Lister Valley Council
Dear Ms Montague
Re: Environmental Health Officer position
I am writing to apply for the position of Environmental Health Officer at Lister Valley Council as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.
In my current role as Environmental Health Officer at Meadow Council, I am responsible for the management and implementation of a gamut of local environmental health programs. This includes, but is not limited to, the monitoring of standards for food preparation, the organisation of school and community immunisation programs, the investigation and control of environmental pollution, the management of wastewater systems, solid waste and recycling programs, business environmental compliance, and the oversight of widespread public education programs.
I am responsible for seeking and achieving sustainable environmental health outcomes across the board. This has involved considerable dealings with public health consultants – of which I used to be one – and academics pertaining to the latest research on environmental health policy.
I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Science (majoring in biochemistry and physiology) and a Master of Public Health (majoring in environmental health). I am also a member of the NSW Infectious Disease Control Committee, which I helped form in the wake of the NSW floods while working as a public health consultant.
I possess excellent communication skills, both written and verbal. I have extensive experience in collecting data and writing reports, with sound critical and analytical skills. I am also versed in all legislation relevant to my role, including the Public Health and Wellbeing Act, the Public Health Act, and the Environmental Protection Act.
I am a vivacious and enthusiastic person, with a passion for good health policy and sustainable environmental outcomes. I work well solo, but generally work best in a dynamic team driven by shared goals.
My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.
