Director of Public Health

We are busy towns and cities, port communities, rural villages and have the longest coastline of any county in Britain. We are also critical to the country's growth agenda. We are Essex.

The strength of Essex is its people and we are here to nurture a safer, better connected society that empowers our residents and celebrates the county's diversity. We want to work locally to create homes not houses, places not developments and communities not estates.

As our new Director of Public Health you will thrive on the opportunity to work as part of the economy, investment and public health directorate and understand the impact this can have on the wider determinants of health. Reporting to the Chief Executive, and with a dotted line to the Executive Director, Economy, Investment and Public Health, you will be a member of the corporate leadership team of the Council. Your portfolio will extend far beyond your statutory public health responsibilities to cover our traveller unit, trading standards and strengthening communities.

We believe that our innovative approach will give us all the best possible chance to collectively tackle the longstanding health issues that exist in some of our more deprived communities. It also means that the role requires someone who fully understands - and can utilise - the fundamental links between the economy, jobs, skills and public health and will relish the chance to work in a different way.

For further information, visit or contact our recruitment partners at Starfish Search, Luke Judd () or Penny Ransley ().
