ATHENA Consulting is an award-winning temporary staffing, direct hire and executive search firm. We are currently recruiting for a Environmental Specialist to work on-site in Rappahannock Rapidan Virginia health district. This position pays up to $22 per hour and requires a criminal history pre-employment check and typing test. This is a Part-Time employment opportunity.
The Environmental Health COVID-19 Specialist is an entry level public health professional responsible for receiving, tracking, and investigating complaints related to Executive Order compliance in businesses in their district.
The incumbent will be expected to gain knowledge, through on-the-job training, about the virus that causes COVID-19, mitigation strategies that reduce the risk of transmission in communities, and Executive Order requirements for businesses and individuals. The incumbent will be responsible for using this information in direct communications with businesses and the public in response to complaints received.
The incumbent will also be responsible for preparing correspondence and following up on enforcement actions. All steps of complaint response require documentation, through correspondence, written observations, or data entry into the VDH-complaint tracking system.
As COVID-19 is having greater impacts on minorities and communities of color, it is critical for the incumbent to consider equity and culturally appropriate communications in all actions taken to ensure community compliance with Executive Orders and public health guidelines for COVID-19. The employee is expected to follow all established policies and procedures for complaint intake, response, enforcement action, data entry, and follow up activities.
