Since qualifying as an Environmental Health Officer in 1993, I have worked continuously in Local Government for several different Local Councils. I have worked in all areas of Environmental Health, but mainly in the areas of Private Sector Housing.

I have a passion for improving the housing standards of people who live in the Private Sector. I have developed effective methods of communication and achieved positive outcomes through informal and formal interventions.

I set up and managed a team of specialist officers enforcing standards in private rented accommodation and administering the licencing of Houses in Multiple Occupation. This was in a University town and in conjunction with the University I also successfully introduced a voluntary Landlord and property accreditation scheme for rented student properties which was based on the ANUK code of the time.

I have over 30 years’ experience of delivering hospitality and customer focussed accommodation services. Having started my career in the hotel industry, in 2004 I moved into the student accommodation sector as a multi-site General Manager for UPP, progressing to National Operations Director. In my ten years in that role I led the mobilisation of new build and estate transfer transactions, which grew the estate from 14,000 bed spaces to one which accommodated 30,000 students across 16 University partners.

In 2020 I established my own consultancy business, providing strategic support and delivering operational solutions in the residential accommodation arena, to both Universities and private providers.

I joined the National Code verification team in 2022.

With a Hotel and Catering Management diploma, my future seemed set out by the course title. After spells in hotels and leisure parks, the prospect of providing similar services in an educational environment, and better pay and more sociable hours attracted; so I began with a junior management role, then moved to a state boarding school in Suffolk as Catering Manager, promoted to Domestic Bursar responsible for all non-academic services.

Back in London Residence Manager, Group Manager, Deputy, then Head of Housing Services for a leading London University.

An opportunity arose to start my own consultancy, which I did and continue to do so. Working as a Verifier for the National Code is part of this, improving standards within the sector, and the opportunity to pass on advice from my years of experience. I also work with several smaller operators in the sector giving support and advice enabling them to achieve best practice.

Derek Goss
I spent over 20 years as Student Accommodation Manager for the University of Kent at Canterbury and Medway. Kent was well known in the sector for providing a wide range of affordable accommodation choice for its students.

I have been a supporter of accredited housing for students, even before the National Codes were first developed and launched back in the early noughties. I assisted in setting up a local city-wide accreditation scheme for student housing across Canterbury. This was developed in collaboration with the city council, two other Universities in the city and the student unions of all three institutions.

I have been a Verifier for the National Codes for over five years and I am also a trustee for a charity organisation called Affordable Accommodation for Students (AA4S) which is based in East London. The Charity prides itself on providing low-cost accommodation for students wishing to attend a University in London.

From a first degree, I qualified as an Environmental Health Officer becoming a Member of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health in 1971. Following on from 32 years working in local government in a statutory housing enforcement role, I established my own Housing and Environmental Consultancy in 2003. Further periods of post-graduate study over two years enabled me to lecture part-time at Birmingham City University on various undergraduate and masters degree courses, becoming a Visiting Fellow to the School of Housing and Social Sciences.

In 2006, I was selected by Warwick University as a member of the first cohort of trainers to promote and train local government staff and others involved in implementing the Housing Health and Safety Rating System. I also became involved in similar training on behalf of Derby Council (DASH) on courses they organised nationally.


Over time, my consultancy has been significantly involved with some of the larger educational institutions seeking to improve standards within their student housing portfolio. From 1986-2024, I have been a housing consultant to UNIPOL on various student related issues. Currently, I am a National Verifier for Accreditation Network UK (ANUK).

Rachel Campey
I have 20 years’ experience of the student accommodation sector, joining Unipol Student Homes in 2003 where I worked in direct property management supporting a range of buildings from PBSA to off-street properties, before moving into an operational and logistics role for over a decade. Most recently, I held the role of Assistant Chief Executive – Housing in Leeds, Bradford and Nottingham.

I have extensive experience of all aspects of student accommodation including building management, standards, tenant satisfaction, best practise and health and safety and since May 2023 I’ve been working on a number of projects for Unipol as well as becoming a National Code verifier.

Richard Lord
I am a Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner specialising in regulating private housing since 2004, working both for local authorities and as an independent consultant both in part time capacities.  I left full-time local authority work in 2013 to start an independent housing and health consultancy that provides support services to landlords and managing agents primarily operating in the student sector.

Currently I work part time for Barnet LBC in the tower block fire safety team inspecting and enforcing fire and other safety standards in tall buildings, reducing internal fire hazards due to poor compartmentation and ill-fitting or badly maintained fire doors. I’m also a surveyor with the English Housing Survey and provides training through DASH on HHSRS and fire safety and CIEH on Statutory nuisances.

During the lockdowns I wrote a book “Fire Safety in Residential Property- A Practical Guide for Environmental Health”
