Do you want to apply your public health skills to partnership work at a national level in order to influence the factors that drive health inequalities?
We are looking for a skilled and experienced public health practitioner who wants to make a difference to the health of current and future generations in Wales. We are looking for someone who is highly motivated, analytical, a skilled communicator and ideally has experience of working with a range of stakeholders, public, third and private sectors.

Each part of our organisation plays a significant part in contributing to the seven priorities of our Strategic Plan, and as part of our contribution, the Wider Determinants of Health Unit is looking for an individual with drive and ambition to join its expanding team. The unit seeks to maximise the influence of the public health system on wider determinants by translating evidence, building capability and coordinating networks of influence to improve the health and wellbeing of the population of Wales and reduce health inequalities.
Main duties of the job
If successful you will play an essential role in helping manage the Public Health Network Cymru team, oversee delivery of the network’s development plan and increase visibility of the network with internal and external stakeholders. The network, which is hosted by the Wider Determinants of Health Unit, aims to inform, facilitate and create connections for professionals from a range of sectors in order to improve population health and well-being and reduce health inequalities.
You will also support the Building a Healthier Wales Coordination Group, a strategic, multi-agency group which seeks to drive the shift to prevention and achieve a healthy and sustainable Wales. You will be a part of the delivery support for the partnership bringing public health expertise to inform and facilitate the work of the group, including collating, synthesising and presenting qualitative and quantitative evidence.
In addition, you will support the development and delivery of other elements of the Wider Determinants of Health Unit workplan including working stakeholders to influence how work and education can improve health and equity.
