Assistant Director, Consultant in Public Health

Wirral Council
Salary from £75,277 to £83,642

Wirral is a unique place, home to a population of over 320,000 people. Our stunning peninsula offers a diverse range of environments, towns and villages, including cutting edge technology and executive living along the banks of the River Mersey, overlooking one of the most awe-inspiring views anywhere in the world in the famous Liverpool skyline.

The Role

We are currently delivering one of the largest, most aspirational regeneration programmes in the country, creating well-designed and sustainable neighbourhoods which foster relationships and community, as well as address climate change. Our plans will not only transform the quality of life for our communities but will also tackle the wider determinants of health across the borough.

We are now seeking to appoint a Consultant in Public Health who will work with partners and communities and lead and inspire the development of innovative solutions that support improvements in health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities. This is a great opportunity to be at the forefront of our system-wide efforts to make a radical and sustainable impact on population health and wellbeing.   You will be an ambitious, creative and forward-thinking public health professional, keen to build on our strong track record of successful public health delivery and work within a supportive, well-resourced and integrated team. This could be your first Consultant role, or you could be already at that level and looking to work in a bigger authority before your move to a DPH role.

We have huge ambitions for Wirral. To achieve everything we have promised to our residents, we need great people with the talent, compassion and energy to really make a difference to their lives.
