Trafford Council and its partners in the public, private and third sectors are embarking on a Vision which sees us working together to close inequality gaps and maximise Trafford’s huge potential. Our vision is working together to build the best future for all our communities and everyone in Trafford
Trafford really is a great place to work. With a positive permission culture, we embrace innovation and encourage performance. We’re keen to recruit someone with the right values and behaviours that can help us ensure our workplace values are at the heart of everything we do
Trafford Council is endeavouring to minimise the impact of COVID-19 outbreaks on our communities, while ensuring that we take all the steps necessary for a strong recovery. The Public Health Lead will play a key role in this by overseeing and managing all aspects of health protection, alongside our Community Infection Control Team. You will manage Trafford’s Outbreak Management and Contact Tracing Hub to support the successful delivery of Trafford’s Outbreak Management Plan. You and your team will play a critical role in ensuring that you deliver high profile projects and business change solutions, in order to manage potential outbreaks and keep everyone in the community as safe as possible.
Your style and approach will reflect our values and behaviours: you will be committed to continually learning & improving the way you do things to ensure effective outcomes; valuing and respecting others’ contribution, you will work together to deliver service; you will take ownership of your actions and strive to getting things right first time and learn from when things do go wrong; you will enjoy taking personal responsibility to resolve issues and change what you do and how you do it to make a difference.
About the Role
You will work in collaboration with Public Health England, Regulatory Services, NHS England, Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group and other key stakeholders and partners within Trafford and Greater Manchester Combined Authorities (GMCA). This role will also include supporting the managements of any outbreaks of other infectious diseases and is not limited to our Covid response. As our covid response moves into business as usual, you will also be expected to develop your Public Health skills through working on other elements of core Public health delivery. This will include a wider health protection role, leading on topics such as screening and immunisation. Further work areas for this will be negotiated with the successful candidate but are likely to include working on reform of children’s public health services.
