Full time

Three organisations. One great career move.

Good public health shouldn’t be dependent on your postcode. This role presents the opportunity to take the strategic lead across three diverse local authorities (Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes councils) – ensuring a cohesive and consistent approach, through effective partnership working. It’s a chance to take your Public Health career to the next level.

You’ll already have a proven track record in designing, implementing and evaluating public health strategy, working in partnership across both local authority and NHS settings. It’s essential that you possess a detailed knowledge of public health practice and epidemiology, equipping you to offer clear, evidence-based analysis and advice to colleagues and a wide range of public stakeholders.

The ability to adapt and articulate complex subject matter to different audiences will be essential in building trust and credibility in a partnership setting – and a highly developed appreciation of working within a political environment will enable you to influence and advise effectively.
