Nottinghamshire County Council is looking for Consultants in Public Health with ambition, energy and vision to bring about change for our residents. If that’s you, then we have opportunities for newly qualified or for experienced Consultants looking to extend their Public Health leadership experience in a varied and challenging environment, working within a strong Public Health leadership team.
Nottinghamshire is a diverse county, consisting of a mix of urban and rural areas, with significant areas of deprivation and health challenges. Health improvement and reducing inequalities are prominent in the Council’s plan to deliver a healthier, greener and more prosperous Nottinghamshire. Nottinghamshire County has an active Health and Wellbeing Board and a Joint Health & Wellbeing Strategy with ambitions and priorities which are reflected in the Integrated Care Plan for Nottingham & Nottinghamshire. You will join a vibrant Council with engaged political leadership and a commitment to cross-Council working to deliver better outcomes for residents, especially those who are least advantaged. Working closely with Councillors, and with senior colleagues across the Council and its partner organisations, you will help to drive forward our vision.
In doing so, you will become part of a varied and friendly Public Health Division, led by the Director of Public Health, a Deputy Director and four experienced Consultants in Public Health. The wider team comprises over 60 colleagues bringing a diversity of multi-disciplinary skills and experience. Our cultural priorities place a high value on outcomes, collaboration, nurturing potential and we seek to strengthen the support and challenge we bring to one another as part of our normal working.
As Consultant in Public Health you will be stimulated by a portfolio which will span the domains of Public Health and will stretch and develop your Public Health and systems leadership. Its exact scope will develop over time but, from the outset, is likely to include work in cross-Council or ICS-related programmes of work addressing prevention, early help and wider determinants, as well as varied Public Health agendas like Public Health intelligence, tobacco control, and public mental health. Maintaining and developing specialist Public Health skills across the domains is important to us but, for those who seek it, we also have scope to explore options for crafting a portfolio which includes more specialised elements.
If you have the ambition and expertise to progress your career in a team like this and to help us make a real impact for people in Nottinghamshire, then we would love to hear from you.
Prerequisites for shortlisting include Public Health specialist registration with the GMC, GDC or UKPHR and that you have evidenced significant consultant-level public health experience and achievement in all areas of public health practice. For all candidates possessing these prerequisites who are interested in applying, we strongly recommend that you first of all take up our invitation for a confidential, no-obligation conversation with Jonathan Gribbin, Director of Public Health.
