This is an exciting opportunity to join the public health team at Worcestershire County Council in a senior role. Worcestershire is a great place to live and work. We have bustling towns and a heritage city, rolling countryside, history, culture, and a passion for sport.
Worcestershire Public Health is forward-looking with a strong focus on innovation to improve health and wellbeing, whilst reducing health inequalities in the County. We believe in developing strong partnerships, with district collaboratives being an example of this, bringing together partners from across local government, NHS and the voluntary sector. Novel programmes of work are underway locally, including asset-based community development. We have a commitment to building places and communities and are undertaking research, designing new approaches and embedding community intelligence and engagement to reduce inequalities experienced across the County, all underpinned through existing and emerging data, insight and analytics capabilities.
We are looking to appoint a creative, proactive and experienced ‘Advanced Public Health Practitioner’ to work within the evidence/intelligence team, which will help to improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities in access and outcomes across Worcestershire.

Worcestershire County Council has a strong commitment to developing staff, focused on building a high-performance culture and the right working conditions, where employees are valued and supported to perform at their best.
The Advanced Public Health Practitioner role will involve providing epidemiological advice, support, data analyses and robust evidence reviews.
