Public Health Lead (Health Improvement)

Surrey County Council is seeking to recruit two Public Health Leads in Health Improvement with strong technical skills and a real commitment to improving population health. The post will be focused on health improvement, supporting a range of interventions and programmes across children and adults.

You will be involved in the design, implementation and monitoring of public health programmes and services, in order to support the delivery of Surrey County Council's public health responsibilities. You will also lead and contribute to multi-agency and partnership networks, working across a range of health and prevention issues.

The Public Health team in Surrey is forward-looking with a strong focus on developing and delivering improvements to the health and wellbeing of our county's population and reducing health inequalities. Public Health currently sits within the Children, Families, Lifelong Learning and Culture directorate of Surrey County Council, leading Health and Wellbeing initiatives for the Council.

The successful candidates will lead on one or more areas within the Health Improvement team as well as provide generic public health input to support partnership work. Specific areas to lead on in the first instance are Children and Young People or Sexual Health but we are looking for candidates who are able to work flexibly on other areas of health improvement to meet the needs of the department (for example mental health, alcohol and substance misuse, smoking and weight management, health improvement communications, health inequalities).

This role will also support the implementation of relevant parts of the Surrey Health and Wellbeing Strategy across organisations and communities and will input into the Annual Public Health Report and the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment.

We are looking for candidates who are passionate about public health and keen to develop their skills. We are supportive of people who wish to pursue the Public Health Practitioners programme.
