Director of Public Health
£100,750 to £114,729
As a recently formed authority, West Northamptonshire Council has the chance to forge its own identity and create a positive and dynamic culture as well as develop structures that are fit for purpose and not simply inherited. We want to do our very best for our residents, service users, businesses and for our staff – and our values and behaviours are based around our ‘Thrive’ agenda: Trust, High performance, Respect, Innovate, Value, Empower.
We are currently seeking to appoint to a crucial new post, and we are looking for candidates with the energy, enthusiasm and determination to work collaboratively with colleagues, Members and partners and make a real difference for our communities.
West Northamptonshire is demographically diverse with pockets of rural isolation as well as urban deprivation. We are seeking a collaborative and innovative public health professional who can work hand in hand with partners within the emerging ICS to ensure we improve wellbeing, reduce health inequalities, and protect communities. We have the resources to back up our intentions, and we are also developing a neighbourhoods model that will allow for a bespoke approach to the needs of particular areas. The role is responsible to the chief executive for its statutory duties, and operationally placed within the Adults, Community and Wellbeing directorate.
