Job Description

Are you passionate about health and wellbeing?

Are you a system leader with collaboration at the heart of your work?

Want to take on a new challenge to change lives in Nottingham?

Nottingham is a vibrant, diverse and ambitious city. We are passionate about tackling inequalities in all we do.  We are home to the “Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change”, and maintain a nationally leading position on carbon reduction with the ambition to be carbon neutral by 2028. We pioneered Early Intervention and Community Care models and maintain award winning parks, leisure and cultural facilities for the benefit of our citizens. Our transport system is celebrated nationally and internationally.

We are seeking an innovative and forward thinking Director of Public Health, who is committed to making improvements to the health and wellbeing of our citizens, and in reducing health inequalities in our city. A strategic collaborator, you will work with one of the best Integrated Care Systems in the country to align public health principles with all strategic plans both within the council and the wider system.

Nottingham is not without its challenges - we have a Recovery and Improvement Plan to help us on our journey with MHCLG and we are also one of the most deprived cities in the UK but we are on the cusp of something exciting – a new era for Nottingham.  Our new Director of Public Health will be have a key role in leading this change.

We have an opportunity to reshape our focus and ambitions with a revised Health and Wellbeing Strategy and invite you on an exciting journey to lead and shape the future of public health services, and the delivery of our vision to be a city that enables healthy lifestyles, promotes wellbeing and supports community resilience.

You will have a proven track record in health improvement and reduction in health inequalities, and experience of driving quality and better outcomes for our diverse communities.  Highly motivated and committed, you will need to demonstrate high levels of political acumen, influencing skills and be capable of working to different organisational cultures.  You will need to be experienced in recognising the impact on the wider determinants of health and in the delivery and implementation of significant health programmes.

If you can match our ambition for healthy lives for all in Nottingham, we would like to hear from you.  We strive to have a workforce that reflects our city’s diversity and this is increasingly important in our decision-making senior leadership roles and a lead commissioner of services in the city. To help us achieve our ambition, we particularly want to hear from candidates who are from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic communities or candidates that identify with having a disability as we are under-represented at this level.
