Public Health Consultant
Not all Public Health Consultant roles are the same. And Reading presents one of the most dynamic and professionally rewarding settings you could hope for.
It’s a place where your expertise can make a real difference to people’s lives, with all the challenge and opportunity of a city setting. Reading has one of the most diverse populations in the South East outside London. Yet at the same time, it is ranked as the 4th most unequal UK city and presents some highly complex issues around homelessness and substance misuse. It’s one of the most dynamic economic centres in the UK. More and more businesses are choosing to invest in Reading, creating more opportunities for our community and attracting new residents to the town. We have a vibrant student population, with 19,000 students from over 150 countries enrolled in Reading University. And with the launch of our new Children’s Company we are transforming how we deliver services to our young people.
All of this shapes an invigorating and challenging environment in which to deliver our Public Health agenda. It demands both breadth and depth of professional expertise, and the ability to make connections between the operational and the strategic. Effective partnership working will be key - working across Council departments and ensuring we work effectively with West Berkshire CCG and the Health & Wellbeing Board. And you’ll also have a role to play across the county, working with the Strategic Director of Public Health for Berkshire.
You’ll need to be adaptable and creative, and wholly outcome focused. With ongoing financial pressures on all our service areas, it’s essential that we see a return on investment across all our endeavours. But you can be assured that your work is central to our ambitions for Reading, and this is an opportunity to be part of a highly focused and committed team, who are making a real difference to our community.
Getting it right in Reading will identify you as a talent to watch. Visit www.teamreading.co.uk to find out more or contact Steve Guest at Solace in Business on 020 7976 3311 for a confidential discussion.
