You will be working within the Research Management and Knowledge Division in the Science Group’s Scientific Strategy & Development Directorate. The division consists of two teams providing support to all UKHSA groups: Knowledge & Library Services (KLS) and the Research Support & Governance Office (RSGO).
Our main function as a division is to co-ordinate knowledge, evidence, research and research-related activities across UKHSA and with external partners and the wider public health research system nationally and internationally. A significant focus is on the development and application of skills, capacity and resources to enhance how UKHSA and public health system partners deal with all sources of public health knowledge and evidence.
The KLS team provides UKHSA with library and knowledge management expertise to support research and development, evidence-based public health, management and business services, with the overall aim of facilitating the translation of knowledge into practice.
The purpose of the role is to manage and develop the KLS knowledge and evidence service delivery to Local Authority Public Health teams, to help meet business needs and support the translation of knowledge into practice. This will include managing a team of Knowledge & Evidence Specialists with specific subject specialist or local responsibilities. The role will include the development of innovative knowledge and evidence support systems, and oversight of work to integrate knowledge and evidence at a local level in support of the wider Public Health system.
The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) offers hybrid working – this means that whilst the role will be based in one of our offices, there will be opportunities for an element of working from home.

This role can be based at one of our UKHSA offices/locations (Leeds, Manchester, Totnes, London, Horsham, Cardiff, Bristol, Nottingham, Harlow, Liverpool, Fareham, Gloucester, Newcastle and Birmingham) with opportunities for an element of working from home. You will be asked to express a location preference during the application process.
The balance between home and workplace working is to be agreed with the line manager, determined primarily by business needs and in line with departmental policy.
*Please be aware that this role can only be worked from within the UK and not overseas. Relocation expenses are not available.*
