About us

East Devon is independently recognised as an outstanding place and so it follows that its council must also strive to be outstanding.  Everything we do is aimed at ensuring that East Devon is a place that people want to live in, work in, visit and enjoy.  Our ambition is to be an outstanding council which works together with local people to create great value services and an outstanding community, economy and environment for East Devon, now and for future generations.

In return for your commitment, you’ll receive an excellent benefits package which includes: generous annual leave; flexi-time; and access to a Local Government Pension Scheme, salary sacrifice cycle scheme, employee assistance programme and personal healthcare scheme.  In addition, you’ll also be encouraged to take advantage of our outstanding learning and development opportunities.

About the role

In the role of Technical Support Officer, you’ll provide efficient administrative support in connection with the registering and processing of Building Control applications, as well as providing support to the team of remote and mobile Building Control Surveyors.  You’ll be a first point of contact for customer enquiries, ensuring that these are handled in a professional and timely manner.  

This is a part time position and due to operational requirements, we will require the successful candidate to work 3 days per week, Wednesday to Friday.  Whilst this position will be based in Honiton, we do recognise the benefits of flexible working and therefore occasional homeworking may be considered.

About you

You’ll be a confident communicator and have excellent customer service skills, along with the ability to work on your own initiative with accuracy and to tight deadlines.  You’ll also be confident using IT systems and ideally, have some previous experience working in a busy office environment.
