Children Public Health Officer (Early Years)

We have an exciting opportunity to contribute towards improving and protecting the health and wellbeing of early years children in Hertfordshire. We’re looking for a talented Early Years Children’s Public Health Officer to join our Children and Young People’s team.


You will support the work of the Health Improvement Lead by driving forward a number of existing workstreams including the national Healthy Start scheme, oral health, healthy eating and physical activity projects alongside implementing and developing new plans and workstreams around infant feeding, accident prevention and emotional health and wellbeing.
Throughout all the workstreams, you will take a whole systems approach by working closely with a range of stakeholders and responding to emerging research and insight. You will work with a wide range of partners including health, early years and the voluntary sector, to identify and implement opportunities to promote and protect health, alongside reducing health inequalities within the early years.


This role will include working on multiple projects simultaneously, so you’ll be familiar with project management principles as well as confident to manage your own workload. The post holder will need a Driving Licence as you will be required to travel within Hertfordshire.


We are a small hard working and supportive team that is always guided by research and evidence.
If you share our passion and commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of Hertfordshire families, and you have experience and knowledge of promoting health within early years and childhood, then we would love to hear from you.


For an informal discussion about this exciting role, please contact Susie Cook, Health Improvement Lead, on 01992 588261.


Closing date: 2nd October 2022
Interview date: 17th and 18th October 2022
