Hampshire County Council are recruiting a Public Health Practitioner Graduate Trainee to start work in September 2023. This will be a 2.5-year fixed term contract. During the 2.5 years, you will gain hands-on experience of public health delivery.
You will be supported through a structured development programme, building on your existing knowledge through further training and education to broaden your knowledge, understanding and application across all areas of public health.

You may be required to visit other locations within Hampshire to attend training and meetings, and therefore need to have the ability to travel, as necessary.
Please note that you must have the right to work in the UK to be eligible for this role.
