Consultant in Public Health Medicine/ Consultant in Public Health
Full time and part time posts
Would you like to practice public health in one of the most beautiful and vibrant parts of Wales? Would you like the challenge of helping shape a transformational journey to improve health and wellbeing over the next5-10 years? Do you want to work where your skills and knowledge can make a real difference to the population, and where you are supported to grow and develop in return? If so, then Powys Local Public Health Team is truly the place to be.
We are looking to appoint committed, enthusiastic applicants to two Consultant posts; one full-time and one part-time (0.6WTE). Both roles will give successful applicants the opportunity to maintain their skills across all areas of public health, as well as the opportunity to gain experience working within a rural health context. The full time post will focus on health protection work (i.e. immunisation and screening) as well as leading on important population health programmes, (i.e. tobacco control and Making Every Contact Count). The part-time post will focus primarily on healthcare public health, working closely with Powys Teaching Health Board to influence and shape their strategic commissioning agenda.
Both roles will allow you to take on a leadership role, influencing the Local Public Health Team, the Health Board and wider partnership arrangements locally and nationally. You will be a source of expert advice, help to shape investment decisions, and improve our understanding of how to address important issues affecting the population of Powys.
Powys Local Public Health Team contains a workforce that is welcoming, professional, and keen to hear new ideas. The Team is committed to continuous professional development, to working collectively, and to influencing public health on a local and national scale. As a Consultant within the team, you will have the opportunity to lead others in a supportive, positive environment where your contribution can make a real difference. Being part of Public Health Wales, you will also benefit from excellent national support and development opportunities.
You will find Powys offers everything you need for true fulfilment, both professionally and personally. When the working day is done, you will discover why Powys has previously been acclaimed as the happiest place to live in the UK. From our beautiful rural communities to the wide range of outdoor pursuits, where better to challenge yourself but in this beautiful and vibrant part of Wales?
