Work for us

Find your future at CIEH.

The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) is a professional membership body dedicated to improving health and wellbeing. We are a registered charity established by Royal Charter, based in the UK with offices in England (London), Northern Ireland (Belfast) and Wales (Cwmbran), operating globally. We are also a professional voice for environmental health, setting standards for the sector.

On behalf of our 8,000 members and the wider environmental health profession, we campaign and provide information and evidence on environmental health issues to the Government and other key decision-makers.

We set standards and accredit courses and qualifications. We provide training to educate, inform and boost the skills of environmental health professionals and the general workforce across the public and private sectors. Our training also assists employers to comply with legal requirements and best practise, to ensure that businesses can enhance the health and wellbeing of staff and clients.

Why work for us?

We’re advocates, activists, educators and experts, all of whom are dedicated to improving public health and wellbeing and supporting the profession. If that's something you're passionate about, take a look at our vacancies below.

The Roles

The CIEH Charter places an important obligation on us to act in the public interest; we are determined to do that in an open and transparent way.  More than two years ago, as part of that approach, the Board commissioned an independent review of CIEH’s governance; we implemented each recommendation from that review.  Alongside that work, we want to ensure that those with governance roles are reflective of the diversity of the modern profession and the communities it serves.

Our Welfare Fund receives its income from the generosity of our members and from investment returns generated on earlier gifts. It is an important part of CIEH membership and we are keen to develop its income and its ability to make grants.

The primary function of the Welfare Fund Committee (which reports to the Board) is to assess, consider and determine applications for awards made by the Fund. Its rules require it to ensure that there is a clear and transparent process in place and appropriate provision for data management and the confidentiality of applications.

We are now looking to recruit two members to our Welfare Fund Committee, one independent member with expertise in fundraising or grant-making and one CIEH member.
