Are you a highly motivated, experienced Public Health professional looking to develop your career? This is an exciting opportunity to take on a policy lead role within the Public Health division at Nottinghamshire County Council, providing specialist Public Health advice and strategic leadership to the local health and wellbeing system.

Qualified to postgraduate level in Public Health or a related clinical subject, or with equivalent demonstrable experience, you’ll have experience of more than one area of Public Health practice, with a comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge of the main issues and influences affecting these areas, ideally including experience of clinical services. You will have excellent communication and partnership working skills, and be able to develop strategic and influencing relationships with senior staff, elected members, external organisations and partners. You will be accountable to a Consultant in Public Health and will work in a complex, multi-agency environment. You will have a flexible approach and be willing and able to develop and change your work areas according to the needs of the division.

The exact portfolio of responsibility will be determined depending on the successful applicant and the needs of the division; however, it is anticipated that your portfolio will include a lead role on mental health, alongside other responsibilities.  You will also participate in arrangements for ensuring clinical governance and quality in commissioned Public Health services.

Postholders will be primarily based at County Hall, Nottingham, but with the option to work flexibly with an alternative base at Meadow House in Mansfield, Notts.

Nottinghamshire County Council has a NHS Pension Direction Order in place, which means that we are able to provide ongoing access to the NHS Pension Scheme (NHSPS) where we recruit eligible new joiners to public health roles who are currently in the NHSPS.
