Our forward-thinking public health team has an excellent opportunity for two Public Health Partnership Managers. Hertfordshire’s vision is to give everyone an opportunity to live a full, healthy and happy life. Hertfordshire County Council is an ambitious local authority which works with district and borough councils and central government to lift up communities at risk of being left behind, by supporting inward investment and creating the jobs and infrastructure for a rapidly expanding population. A reduction in health inequalities and the prevention of avoidable ill-health are key priorities, along with the integration of health and social care through close working within the Hertfordshire and West Essex Integrated Care System.
The role will develop and implement a programme of public health support for Health Care Partnerships (HCPs), NHS Trusts and Primary Care Networks in Hertfordshire. You will manage a diverse portfolio of work that will bring you into contact with a wide range of stakeholders locally. This will include engaging with stakeholders, planning, managing, and delivering a range of projects and providing expert public health advice to external partners. You will need to have a range of communication styles to influence decisions and actions, and work in an agile way to adapt between priorities.
This role would be suitable for somebody who is keen to experience working at the interface between local authority public health and NHS policy and service delivery.
We will need you to have a degree in a related discipline or equivalent, or experience in a field relevant to public health, health and social care. Substantial experience within the NHS and/or public health in a strategic or commissioning role and experience of analysing data and of undertaking health needs assessments and evidence reviews is required.
