Consultant in Public Health
Local Authority Scale SLMG 2 (£74,263 - £80,451)
Nottingham is a vibrant, multi-cultural city with a long and proud history. Home to over 300,000 people, we are passionate about tackling inequalities in all we do and we are confident and ambitious about our future. Our vision is a city where every one of our citizens can enjoy life in a safe, supportive and healthy environment, free from poverty and safe from harm; a city where everyone can achieve their full potential.
Within our public health team, we have an opportunity for a motivated and dynamic Consultant in Public Health to join us on this journey towards meeting our vision. The role will support a range of public health agendas, including a focus on COVID-19 Impact and Recovery and it is a full-time and permanent position.
In Nottingham, we are fully committed to improving the health of our population and to reducing health inequalities, as reflected in the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy and The Council Plan. This appointment will support Nottingham’s Director of Public Health (DPH), the Council and partners to achieve these ambitions for the City by providing leadership to COVID-19 response and recovery, as well as wider public health priorities.
This post-holder will support the DPH in delivering public health priorities across Nottingham City with a diverse range of partners in the local authority, NHS and other statutory and voluntary organisations, including the Health and Wellbeing Board. You will be a key part of an expanding team of six Public Health Consultants and a Director of Public Health, supported by a team of Public Health Insight Specialists and Analysts.
You will be intellectually and practically flexible and able to cope with multiple and changing demands. You will use negotiation, motivation skills and public health leadership skills to deal with complex public health issues, advising and making recommendations regarding health and care services and patient care. You will appreciate the importance of understanding Nottingham’s diverse cultures to advocate and enable effective working across organisational boundaries, influencing without direct authority where necessary.
You will be confident in leading on complex public health issues, advising the local authority, Clinical Commissioning Group, Integrated Care System and the Health and Wellbeing Board and making recommendations regarding services, patient care and the wider determinants of health.
We will encourage your professional development facilitating a range of CPD opportunities that will enable you to be a confident, competent consultant and supervisor for registrars and junior doctors.
We strive to have a workforce that reflects our city’s diversity and this is increasingly important in our decision-making senior leadership roles and a lead commissioner of services in the city. To help us achieve our ambition, we particularly want to hear from candidates who are from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic communities or candidates that identify with having a disability as we are under-represented at this level.
If you’d like to work as part of a collaborative and collegiate team across a range of public health agendas in an exciting and vibrant core city then we’d love to hear from you.
