Summary

Public Health England (PHE) provides strategic leadership and vision for protecting and improving the nation's health. Its ambition is to lead nationally and enable locally a transformation in the health expectations of all people in England regardless of where they live and the circumstance of their birth. It will achieve this through the application of research, knowledge and skills. PHE is an executive agency of the Department of Health. It is a delivery organisation with operational autonomy to advise and support Government, local authorities and the NHS in a professionally independent manner. On 18 August 2020, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced plans to establish the National Institute of Health Protection and consult on the best future options for strengthening health improvement and other public health functions in the wider system. Public Health England and its employees will be in scope for transition to new organisations in Spring 2021. Any new or current employees working for Public Health England during this time, will receive appropriate consultation prior to any formal transfer taking place. Employees who compulsorily transfer to successor bodies will remain on their existing contractual terms and conditions and this applies both to current employees and those recruited during the transition. The recruitment, growth & development of our workforce is vital for the continuing success of PHE and thefuture National Institute for Health Protection.

At a local level, the PHE South East Region delivers four core functions of public health: health protection, healthcare public health, health and wellbeing and public health workforce. These posts will sit within the newly established Population Health Programme Team within the PHE South East Region, which provides population health management expertise to NHSEI and key system partners to improve population health outcomes.

Job description

We are seeking four candidates to join the PHE South East Population Health Team. The post holders will lead and deliver a range of projects & programmes across PHE South East aimed at driving improvements and reducing health inequalities in population health and wellbeing with a focus on mitigating the impact that Covid-19 has on health systems. They will understand the public health system and political environment and will promote the use of evidence in a way that enables local action and decision making to optimise population health. They will also support the delivery of high quality, specialist technical and professional population health improvement projects and services at system level.

The successful candidates will have current knowledge about the context for population health improvement that has been shaped by leading projects & programmes at a senior level in local authority, NHS or provider sector organisations. They will have high quality policy and analytical skills in both identifying emerging issues and developing creative, innovative and practical solutions, with strong understanding of the wider partnership context. They should be able to demonstrate a track record of getting things done through collaborating, influencing and negotiating successful outcomes. Applicants should have excellent organisation, project management, leadership and interpersonal skills to work with a range of internal and external partners to translate theory into practice and expert knowledge into concise advice. A confident communicator, they will work as part of a wider public health regional team influencing across organisational boundaries and supporting local Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) to plan and deliver changes that improve population health outcomes and reduce the gap in health inequalities.
