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.

Jobs at CIEH

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.

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

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.
