- detail your Food Hygiene/Food Standards experience/knowledge, including any key achievements in your career to date.
- from a health and safety perspective, which matters of evident concern do you consider most significant in food businesses? Highlight any health and safety experience you may have.
- explain how you would approach an inspection where a language barrier was making communication with the business difficult?
- A degree or diploma in Environmental Health or equivalent or Higher Certificate in Food Premises Inspection and EHRB or equivalent.
