This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic local authority Public Health team covering two diverse areas within central London, and play a central role in the local COVID-19 response effort. As Consultant in Public Health, you will have lead responsibility for key strategic pieces of work to support the delivery of local outbreak control and recovery plans, with the specific portfolio to be confirmed following appointment.

Our new approach is cutting-edge: working across two local authorities to develop programmes that emphasise collaborative working and take a systemic view of public health. This is an exciting opportunity to go beyond our statutory duties and create lasting change.  

You will need a broad understanding of health and well-being, backed up by relevant experience and technical expertise. You will be able to communicate complex issues in a way that engages a range of audiences. We will also need you to design policies that translate into workable, cost-effective, solutions.

Our ideal candidate will be on the GMC Specialist Register, the GDC Specialist List, or the UK Public Health Register for Public Health Specialists. If not currently listed, you will need to demonstrate inclusion within six months. 

Public Health in City and Hackney is a vibrant and dedicated team, known for being innovative and passionate about improving the health of our local population. The team is on a journey to transform both local authorities, to take a ‘Health in All Policies’ approach.

Hackney is one of the UK’s highest performing local authorities, serving one of London’s best places to live and work.  We have achieved a huge amount: our services, our schools, our public spaces are all amongst the very best.  We have changed the reputation, not just of the Council, but of Hackney itself. Bringing jobs and investment into the borough, securing the legacy from the 2012 Games, and making this a place of which we can all be proud.

Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status.

We also welcome those interested in flexible working. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people, as this group is currently under-represented in our workforce.
