We believe that Wolverhampton is an exciting place to work in Public Health. We have a clear vision and a culture of improvement and innovation, and we pride ourselves on working across the whole Council and with partners. City of Wolverhampton was named Local Authority of the Year in the 2017 MJ Awards, for its outstanding example of modern local government where the resident is at the heart of decision-making.

We are recruiting two 12 months fixed term posts to our Place Based team and the post holders will work with local people, communities, the council, partners and community organisations to maximise opportunities to reduce inequalities in the city and ensure our residents have opportunity to live longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives.

The postholders will support the delivery of our place based approach by creating environments whereby local people and communities are supported and empowered to bring about a catalyst for change and build resilience in their communities.  The postholder will work across the city and use evidence and through engagement, understand and respond to local issues and opportunities through utilising community assets and implementing projects and activities with communities to maximise impact.

Successful candidates will have experience of partnership working and building and maintaining productive working relationships with communities and residents.
