Closing date: 21 January 2022
Annual wage: £18933

The COVID pandemic has highlighted the important role of local public health teams and of the data and intelligence required to support their evidence-based decision-making. The shadow it has cast in terms of worsening physical and mental health will take years to overcome – this is an opportunity to play a worthwhile part in that recovery and to kick-start your career by developing skills that are in short supply.
As an Apprentice Public Health Intelligence Analyst, you will be part of a dynamic team responsible for delivering an effective Public Health Intelligence service supporting public health delivery in a local authority. You will support the key activities of understanding the health needs of the population, addressing health inequalities, determining priorities for action, assisting wider understanding of the characteristics of the local population and actively disseminating findings to a wide audience.
Through the two-year scheme you will get a broad exposure to Public Health Intelligence through year-long placements in two different organisations, while completing a Level 4 Data Analyst apprenticeship. For example, for the posts at Sheffield City Council, subject to confirmation, the first trainee will complete placements in Sheffield City Council (based in Sheffield) then Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council (Barnsley); the second trainee will complete placements in Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (Rotherham) then Doncaster Council (Doncaster).

Please apply only to one location, as multiple applications will be sifted out – if successful in securing an interview, you will be given an opportunity then to express any interest in other locations.
Interviews will take place mid-February, with successful candidates starting in post mid-May
