This is an exciting opportunity to lead on the development of environments that support good health across Hertfordshire. We are looking for an experienced planning or public health professional to join our innovative public health team
Working for public health will give you an alternative perspective on town planning, as well as useful career experience. Our work is diverse, with a range of functions that include the promotion of healthy environments, commissioning of a range of services (e.g. sexual health and drug and alcohol), and partnership working to improve health outcomes within Hertfordshire.
Hertfordshire is experiencing unprecedented growth with at least 100,000 new homes and 100,000 new jobs to be created by 2031.
