Public Health Trainee
Due to the promotion of the current post-holder, North East Lincolnshire’s Public Health Team is delighted to announce the vacancy of its 2 year fixed term Public Health Trainee post.
We are now seeking applications from ambitious and enthusiastic graduates who would wish to join our established trainee scheme, commencing September 2019* (*start date is subject to negotiation).
North East Lincolnshire Council is very proud of its public health trainee scheme which is now approaching its 3rd year of operation. The trainee schemes in public health have proven to be highly successful with all previous post-holders obtaining promotions following completion of the schemes. This has included opportunities within community protection, children’s mental health, commissioning and strategic support, as well as the core public health team.
The public health trainee programme is now an integral and regionally recognised part of our “grow your own” strategy, ensuring that we are not only developing public health skills within the council, but also developing possible local candidates for the national public health consultant training programme. The trainee post is a rolling fixed term 2 year contract, which enables us to have a continuous local training programme for public health in North East Lincolnshire.
During the 2 year contract, the post-holder will be supported in following a training and personal development programme, which will include a number of placements covering a wide range of national, regional and local health and wellbeing organisations. The successful candidate will also be expected to study part-time for a Master’s Degree in Public Health (MPH) as part of the 2 year training programme. This will ensure that on completion of the programme, the successful candidate will not only have a wide range of experience and recognised core competencies, but will also be suitably qualified to further their health and wellbeing career in North East Lincolnshire.
The post holder will make a significant contribution to the council’s public health statutory responsibilities and the health and wellbeing outcome within the Local Authority’s Outcomes Framework.
The successful candidate will need to demonstrate a passion and commitment to a career in health and wellbeing and have a sound understanding of the role and duties of local authorities in terms of public health, as well as a range of demonstrable skills including research/data analysis, communication and presentation skills, report writing, relationship management and project management.
