- acting as lead trainer for Cumbria’s Specialty Trainee Registrars and F2 placements
In addition the post holder will lead on other areas of work across the public health team and contribute to work with key partner agencies and other Local Authority colleagues. Alongside the other Public Health Consultant and other senior public health staff, the post holder will support the Director of Public Health in discharging his duties and deputise as appropriate.
The post holder will be based within the Public Health Team based in the south of the County and is part of the People Directorate.
To be considered for this post you must be able to cope with multiple and changing demands, and to meet tight deadlines. A high level of intellectual rigour, political awareness, negotiation and motivation skills and flexibility is essential. You must be able to demonstrate a high level of tact, diplomacy and an ability to understand other cultures as well as advise, challenge and advocate across organisational boundaries in order to effectively influence stakeholders, senior Council staff and Local Authority Members.
