Your new company

Your new role
You will enforce street trading legislation on London’s main bridges in the afternoon and evenings on Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, to help tackle the increasing amount of illegal street trading going on. You will be interacting directly with offenders as well as educating members of the public. You will be responsible for the enforcement of legislation associated with the areas of work within the remit of the licensing service which will involve producing the necessary evidence and documentation for legal services, interviewing alleged offenders and giving evidence on behalf of the Corporation where necessary. Working closely with colleagues from the Police in identifying risk associated with licensed premises and carry out joint visits with the Police and other multi-agency teams.
