Senior Public Health Officer (2 x permanent, 1 x fixed term)
You’ll be part of big changes in Barnsley. We’re not just changing ways of working and improving services. We’re committed to promoting wellbeing and tackling health inequalities in our communities. As a Senior Public Health Officer, you’ll be instrumental to a range of public health programmes.
Creativity, ambition and a focus on people; that’s what matters at Barnsley Council. Our award-winning council is on an exciting journey of change. It’s all about putting local people at the heart of everything, listening to and doing good for our communities. We’re now more innovative, more efficient and provide better value for money. The changes are clear to see - from new businesses and jobs, to improving school results and to museums being recognised for their community engagement.
Shape a better future with us
We’re thrilled to have achieved Investors in People (IIP) Gold status for how we lead, support and develop people. Now we’d like you to be part of our success and help us take change further. Join us on our journey to a brighter future. By working together, with each other and with our communities, we can take pride in improving lives. Let’s make a better Barnsley for everyone.
Your role in our journey
As a Senior Public Health Officer, you’ll provide specialist public health support to a portfolio of public health initiatives. The portfolios for the two permanent posts will cover children and young people’s health. The portfolio for the fixed term post will cover oral health and sexual health (all ages).
Working in close partnership with colleagues across the council, the NHS and a host of statutory, community and voluntary groups, you will lend your expertise to programmes promoting health and wellbeing. Crucially, you’ll also help us to develop, deliver and evaluate projects to tackle health inequalities. What’s more, you’ll help us to develop services, commissioning and strategies, and play a key part in needs assessments and service reviews. Your portfolio will be broad ranging and you will have the public health skills and experience to tackle other priorities as they arise.
What you’ll need
To join us, you’ll need a relevant degree. An experienced senior Public Health officer, your track record includes involvement in commissioning, budget management and the development of strategies and policies to change services and outcomes. You’ve used evidence-based project management, change management and performance management techniques to drive successful change. With a flair for public engagement and partnership working, it is your talent for effective communication that really sets you apart.
