Director of Public Health
We’re continuing to build a future for Jersey that will see people, business and government come together to collaborate in a way they’ve never done before. This approach is called Team Jersey and it’s a milestone in our history: one island, one community, one government – and one exciting future. Now we need a talented leader to join us for a career-defining opportunity in this new role: to make change happen in a unique, historic Island.
System leadership will be key to success for the appointed candidate, as you will have the opportunity to play a lead role in the development of the new Jersey Care Model and the move towards a more personcentred approach to care, with the individual at the heart and care closer to home where possible. This is a role of scale and complexity and will require a public health professional with exceptional system-leadership experience and expertise.
We are seeking an influential strategic leader with the credibility and proven ability to be a strong ‘national’ public health leader for the Island, with excellent interpersonal skills and the necessary behaviours to work with partners at a local, national and international level. You must also be able to evidence substantial experience in leading, managing and successfully delivering large scale communicable disease services. In addition, you will have an in-depth understanding of the challenges, complexities and opportunities of delivering the full range of public health services.
Strong partnership working experience, both internally and externally, is essential, coupled with excellent leadership skills and the required specialist public health registration or equivalent with GMC, GDC or UK PHR allied to significant experience in all areas of public health practice.
