The City of Wolverhampton is a place which is proud of its history, celebrates its diversity and is ambitious for the future. The vision for the City is one which is a healthy, thriving and sustainable international ‘smart city’ - renowned for its booming economy and skilled workforce, rich diversity and a commitment to fairness and equality that ensures everyone has the chance to benefit from success. This means we must address some deeply entrenched inequalities that exist in different communities, some of which have been exacerbated by the pandemic.
We are looking to recruit a number of passionate, experienced and motivated Health Improvement Officers to come and join our team and help to deliver the vision, working under the guidance of Principal Public Health Specialists:
5 x 18 month fixed term vacancies
1 x 9 month fixed term vacancy
(Please indicate the posts you wish to be considered for in the ‘additional information’ section of your application.)
The Health Improvement Officer role will involve working with staff, organisations, community groups and volunteers to raise the profile of Public Health and health inequalities, and to build Public Health capacity within the City of Wolverhampton. It will involve training, project planning and delivery, implementation of local policy, networking/partnership working, promoting evidence based practice and evaluation of health improvement initiatives.
