For existing employees this opportunity is being offered as a secondment, subject to eligibility criteria

We aim to be a city of growth where every child, citizen and place matters. Birmingham City Council wants to make a positive difference, every day, to people’s lives. This underpins everything that the Council does, whether that’s setting priorities, making decisions or delivering services.

Birmingham City Council will focus our resources on these key priorities:

  • Birmingham is an entrepreneurial city to learn, work and invest in
  • Birmingham is an aspirational city to grow up in
  • Birmingham is a fulfilling city to age well in
  • Birmingham is a great, clean and green city to live in
  • Birmingham residents gain the maximum benefit from hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games
  • Birmingham is a city that takes a leading role in tackling climate change

The council’s role is to provide strategic leadership – that’s being able to visualise a new future for the city and equipping others to share our vision. We want to ensure the provision of decent services for all, so we can focus on supporting those least able to support themselves. And we’ll work with partners and put citizens and neighbourhoods at the heart of our decision-making.

Public Health is an integral part of achieving this vision.

This role will require a well organised methodical and diligent person who is comfortable working off their own initiative, in an outcomes/outputs focussed team.

The post holder will sit within the Strategy and Business Team, reporting to the Programme Manager. The primary function of the role is to support the Programme Manager in providing strategic and operational support to the Test & Trace division within Public Health. The post holder may have line management responsibility for several administrative staff

Interviews for this post will take place virtually via video conferencing. Shortlisted candidates will be provided with further information
