This is an exciting opportunity to join Hertfordshire County Council’s drive to improve food security and reduce health inequalities for residents across the County.
As part of the public health team, you will work in partnership with a range of local and national organisations to make a significant contribution to the health and quality of life for Hertfordshire residents.
You will report to the Health Improvement lead for Whole Systems Obesity and the main focus of your work will be delivering the recommendations of our recent food poverty needs assessment, as part of Hertfordshire’s Building Life Chances programme. This will include setting up a Food Poverty Alliance Network and a food aid network and working on several projects simultaneously, so you’ll be familiar with project management principles, as well as confident to engage with a wide range of stakeholders.
You must have excellent written and verbal communication skills, because you’ll be writing reports and giving presentations. You will be a competent user of Microsoft Office applications.
We’re looking for someone with knowledge of the principles and practice of public health, and with a good understanding of health inequalities and a strong commitment to tackle the wider determinants of health.
