This new Environmental Act, but also other laws such as the General Local Regulation, the Alcohol Act and the Housing Act, require a simplified and modernized permit process.

We use the RxMission application for Permits, Supervision and Enforcement (VTH) processes and applications such as RxLaunch and Validsign. You help digitize processes and are ready to answer questions about the use of the applications.

In addition, you regularly work with external partners such as the Safety Region and the Environment Agency.

There is an atmosphere of expertise and conviviality within the team, where knowledge sharing is central and activities are regularly organized. For example, there was recently a beer tasting and an evening at the Tilburg Trappers is planned.

Within your position you have the freedom to organize your time and day yourself, whereby you work approximately 50% at the office (the modern Stadswinkel) and 50% from home.
