Our Client Hackney Council are looking for Senior Public Health Specialist to join their Children, Adults and Community Health Team.

As a Senior Public Health Specialist, the post holder will work within a team of public health staff to support the Director of Public Health to improve health outcomes and reduce health inequalities in London Borough of Hackney (LBH) and, where appropriate City of London Corporation (CoL). They will act in a supporting role for specified areas of public health to plan, deliver and evaluate public health initiatives. They will be expected to be able to work across all domains of public health as and when required to do so and with additional training and support if necessary. The post holder may be required to change topics or work across portfolio areas in line with the needs of the business whilst maintaining generic public health skills as necessary. The postholder will have to adapt rapidly to shifting demands and priorities, and needs to be flexible and adaptable, with a high level of professional credibility. The post holder will utilise a broad range of specialist skills, and draw upon a wide range of the Council's intelligence and knowledge to enhance delivery. Their work may require designing and implementing systems and processes; diagnosing and providing solutions to performance problems; developing programmes related to improving key cross-cutting Public Health outcomes; supporting services to change the way they do things; managing the development of cross cutting strategies; and aligning services to make the best use of resources. This role will be based within a central team but will work with services and managers across all directorates, embedding Public Health responsibilities into the framework of the organisation. They may also be working within project teams that include partnership organisations; staff from other local authorities; elected Members; the public; external contractors; or any other relevant partners required to deliver the project. The postholder may be required to act as a public health business partner to other areas of the council.
