At Newcastle City Council, we have big ambitions for our city and its residents. We want Newcastle to be a fair, prosperous, outward-facing, innovative and vibrant city. We are guided by fairness, inclusion, and social justice.
We are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic Director of Public Health who is passionate about our vision of making Newcastle a healthier place to live and work. Someone who can build upon what we’ve learned from the pandemic and who can shape a clear path to tackle social and health inequalities exposed and amplified by it.
Building on successes of working collaboratively with colleagues, partners and agencies in the region and beyond, the Director of Public Health will strengthen these relationships and play a key role in contributing to the recovery and renewal of our great city, meeting our three key priorities of reducing poverty, supporting residents to mitigate against the cost of living crisis, and the goal of becoming carbon neutral.
We believe public health is central to everything we do, if you are inspired by our ambitions, we’d love to hear from you.
In return, we can offer you a competitive salary and pension, a generous annual leave allowance, numerous salary sacrifice schemes, flexible and agile working arrangements, professional development opportunities and a rewarding, challenging career.
We strive to be an organisation where equality, diversity and inclusion is part of who we are and how we work and where everybody is treated fairly, with dignity and respect. We are committed to building an inclusive and supportive workplace where everyone can bring their whole self to work and succeed in being their best.
