The trend continues, with another drop in government jobs on offer this week. Our non-job of the week comes from Lambeth:
“Enviro-Crime Enforcement Officer
£29,241 - £30,774 pa
You care about the environment… More than that, you want to achieve change: make this city a cleaner, greener safer place. That’s what we want. Come and join Lambeth Street Care in the fight against grime and environmental crime.
Lambeth is the fastest improving Council in London, having achieved a 3 star CPA rating. These posts are central to achieving our commitment towards improving and maintaining the quality of life enjoyed by residents across our diverse, vibrant multi-cultural borough.
If you share our concerns and objectives and believe you have the skills and temperament required to make a difference in this challenging and important role, this is your opportunity.
We currently have a vacancy for a high calibre individual who can demonstrate a clear understanding of the relevant environmental issues.
You’ll join an experienced team of enforcement officers, utilising a wide range of statutory powers to tackle environmental offences such as fly-tipping, littering and unlicensed street trading. An in-depth knowledge of the relevant legislative framework needs to be supported by experience of working in a similar enforcement related role.

If you liked Robocop, why not apply in Lambeth to become Envirocop. Complete with a set of Council issue sandals, you can use ‘statutory powers’ to fine people for dropping crumbs or cigarette ends…
It’s sadly been noted over the months I’ve looked for these non-jobs that government seems to be more concerned with making more things ‘criminal’ rather than dealing with serious crime. All I can say about this job is that it’s your money being used to appease soft-headed Greenies in the political class. You think that’s a price worth paying?
