Director of Public Health
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a well-established Department of Public Health, with excellent local relationships, on a job share basis with the existing Director of Public Health who wishes to reduce his hours. It offers an excellent opportunity to the right candidate to grow in to the role of DPH in a supportive local authority environment.
The DPH ensures that public health is integrated into the work of the council and delivers maximum improvements in the health and wellbeing of local people. S/he plays a critical role in raising the profile of public health and driving forward the health and wellbeing agenda.
The DPH is the professional advisor to the Council on all public health matters and works closely with councillors, and the cabinet lead for Public Health. As a member of the Authority’s senior management team the DPH is expected to take a lead role across the wider authority as well as within public health.
To deliver this challenging role you will be someone who:
- Is a transformational and visionary leader with high levels of political awareness
- Has exceptional communication and people management skills
- Is able to work with and inspire others to achieve sustainable improvements in the health of local people.
This is an ideal opportunity for a suitably qualified and skilled public health leader who wishes to pursue a wider career in local government as well as within public health.
