Join our expanding team throughout Wales
Wales benefits from a strong sense of community, affordable housing, great schools and lots of ways to have fun and relax. It’s an easy place to settle whether you bring your family or come on your own.
NHS Wales is unique, with an integrated model of care supporting patients. Public Health Wales is a national Public Health Institute, working locally, nationally and internationally on infection and wider health and wellbeing, within the NHS.
Our expanding National Health Protection Service in Public Health Wales, embraces this with a strong commitment to collaboration, team working and personal development. Recognising the importance of preventing and responding to a range of hazards, a devolved Welsh Government has prioritised significant investment for the development of our National Health Protection Service.
We invite you to join us to help with the changes needed to manage epidemiology services following the COVID-19 pandemic, including applying the lessons learned and skills developed to all infectious and environmental hazards.
Building on our strengths, and working closely with wider partners, we are transforming our services to deliver a world-class service for the prevention, management and control of health protection threats. This post offers real opportunities to influence policy and practice based on epidemiological analyses.
To complement our existing teams, Public Health Wales is seeking to appoint a highly motivated, enthusiastic Public Health Specialist to the post of Consultant Epidemiologist, in the Communicable Disease Surveillance Centre (CDSC, Health Protection Division). We are looking to appoint to 1.5 WTE on a permanent basis, either 1.0 WTE and a 0.5 WTE post, or a combination of part-time positions depending on the successful applicants.
The post holder will provide the strategic leadership and technical input for surveillance, field epidemiology, research and training to the subject group areas within the Communicable Disease Surveillance Centre of Public Health Wales. In addition, and by agreement with the lead Consultant Epidemiologist, the post holder will support defined portfolio areas working on an all Wales basis. The post holder will support the supervision and development of trainees and other staff.
Candidates must be included on the GMC Specialist Register in Public Health, Microbiology or Infectious Diseases Medicine, or UK Public Health Register for Public Health Specialists.
