Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council is looking to the future. What future can you help us forge for Dudley?

This is an exciting opportunity to be the driving force behind better health and wellbeing in Dudley and play a key role in the strategic leadership of a portfolio of health and well-being services that will make a difference to people across Dudley.

It is an exciting time to join Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council as we embark on numerous multi-million pound regeneration schemes. Alongside this, we have the ongoing challenges of ensuring vulnerable residents receive the services they deserve, especially in the current unique times. We are an ambitious authority that is committed to delivering our vision to ‘Forge a Future for all’ through working on a long-term plan with our partners and the communities we serve. Together we will grow the economy and create jobs, create a cleaner and greener place and support stronger and safer communities.

People’s health and wellbeing is a key part of our vision to make Dudley amongst the best places in the UK in which to visit, live and work; and one that we can all be proud of. As Director of Public Health and Wellbeing, you will take the lead in promoting and protecting health and wellbeing, with a particular emphasis on tackling health inequalities and improving health care quality through active partnerships with a wide range of agencies.

This will include developing a clear strategy that ensures health and social care, education, housing, jobs and economic policies and infrastructure are shaped in ways which deliver maximum improvements in health and wellbeing. You will also develop strong working relationships with local NHS partners and public and private sector agencies on key priorities such as community safety, alcohol and drugs prevention and treatment.

Experience of managing at a senior level in a public health environment is essential, as is a demonstrable track-record of delivering improved health and wellbeing outcomes with the ability to identify and help address health inequalities, whilst protecting local communities from public health hazards.

If you relish challenge and have the energy, enthusiasm and skills to deliver better outcomes and make a real impact, then we would like to hear from you.
