Birmingham City Council aims to improve the quality of life for the people of Birmingham today, tomorrow and always. Our vision for Birmingham is that it becomes  

  • An entrepreneurial city to work, learn and invest.
  • An aspirational city to grow up in.
  •  A fulfilling city to age well in.
  • A great, clean, and green city to live in
  • A city whose residents gain the maximum benefit from hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
  • A city that takes a leading role in tackling climate change

The Public Health Function is an important contributor to this vision, responsible for developing the Council into a ‘Public Health Engine’, which actively promotes population good health and enables all Birmingham citizens to make healthier choices. This will be achieved through the continual championing of the health and wellbeing of all people across the city, but especially the most vulnerable. The delivery of an effective intelligence-led approach based on a set of agreed principles will require significant cultural and structural change – where the citizen is at the heart of what we do and each and every member of the Public Health workforce willingly and actively takes responsibility for their actions.

We have an exciting opportunity for someone to join our multi-disciplinary Public Health Division in a Public Health Service Lead role. This is a rare opportunity for a skilled individual to join Public Health within the largest Local Authority in the country and lead work that contributes to Birmingham being a great city that enables people to live healthy and active lives.

The Post is part of the Adults team and will be responsible for the development and delivery of two key workstreams in the adult’s team.  These are:  

  • The £15m sexual health programme monitoring and commissioning oversight for the procurement of new SH service contract(s) by 2023
  • Fast track Cities + the international programme to accelerate the elimination of HIV with additional, local targets around Hep C and TB.  BCC will sign the FTC declaration in October.  A significant programme of work has been set out as part of FTC with an action plan, comms campaign and investment planning and negotiations across the local healthcare system.

The existing post also has line management responsibility for a G4 support officer.
