This is an exciting opportunity to be part of an outcome-based approach to public health. You will be joining a progressive Authority with a clear ambition to enable our people to flourish.

Under a newly appointed Joint Director of Public Health across both North and North East Lincolnshire, we are now seeking a Deputy Director of Public Health. You will play a key leadership role in embedding public health approaches at system, place, and neighbourhood level to tackle inequalities in health outcomes across the population. Building on a history of joint collaboration and sharing of public health resources, you will become part of a wider public health system approach to engaging with a range of partners, as a system leader across the three main components of public health: improving health and wellbeing, health care public health and health protection.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, committed and experienced Public Health Consultant to establish this newly created role. This is an ideal opportunity for someone interested in developing into a future Director of Public Health and the successful candidate will work with the Joint Director to develop the position, as well as contributing to the COVID response. You will primarily act as the lead for public health within North Lincolnshire Council, developing the council’s strategic approach to health and wellbeing across its functions and ensuring it fulfils its statutory role for the local population.  You will also support the Joint Director in the development of a wider public health system with colleagues in North East Lincolnshire and with engagement in the wider public health agenda across the region.

With the skills to lead and manage public health provision and policy, you will work across a range of service areas and in partnership with other stakeholders and service providers. You must be able to cope with multiple and changing demands and to meet tight deadlines. A high level of intellectual rigour, political awareness, negotiation skills and flexibility are essential. Influencing skills are also key, along with the ability to understand other cultures as well as advise, challenge and advocate across organisational boundaries in order to effectively influence stakeholders, senior Council staff and Local Authority Members.

The successful applicant will be registered as a Specialist with the UKPHR / GMC Full and Specialist Register or be within 6 months of registration.
