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. 

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 Public Health Nurse you will provide evidence based public health nursing practice under the supervision of a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse, promoting and improving health and inequalities at individual, family and community level. Whilst delivering public health initiatives you will provide professional advice, guidance, support and mentoring to team members and students. You will contribute to the delivery of the Healthy Child Programme to improve health and wellbeing and safeguard children, young people and families.

A lot to look forward to 

Here at Barnsley, we live and work by four important values: honesty, teamwork, excellent service, and taking pride in what we do. Our Public Health Nursing Service is at the forefront of providing care to our children, young people and families and we are currently on a journey of re-designing the service which we hope will become a truly integrated service that works in partnership with other children’s services and becomes a beacon of good practice at both regional and national level. 

Successful candidates will be offered the opportunity to access either the Local Government Pension or NHS Pension Scheme.
