Director of Public Health

East Sussex County Council is committed to the ongoing improvement of the services we deliver at a time when doing so demands ever more innovative thinking and willingness to embrace new ways of working.

We see Public Health as a key factor in helping us to deliver the goals that we have committed to as a Council. Our four key priorities are driving economic growth, keeping vulnerable people safe from harm, building resilience for individuals and families to live independently and making best use of our resources. The contribution of Public Health leadership in these areas is one that we are determined to embrace.

We are seeking a Director of Public Health who will help us to realise the opportunity that Public Health offers to truly transform both our organisation and our community.

As an organisation that is undertaking significant change, we are seeking a leader who will deliver strategic and creative thinking, effective leadership of the Public Health function and strong, credible partnerships with key individuals and organisations both within and beyond the Council.

Reporting to our Director of Adult Social Care and Health, you will forge relationships with other council leaders, and support elected members in achieving their aspirations for the health and wellbeing of our citizens.

An ability to lead and influence and a passion for innovation are more important to us than previous Director level experience, but you will need to bring the knowledge and credibility needed to be a visible and effective force for change.
