Our ambitious regeneration programme to drive growth and economic prosperity is key to our vision to make Thurrock an ambitious and collaborative community that is proud of its heritage and excited by its diverse opportunities and future. The COVID-19 Pandemic has only strengthened our resolve to ensure that public health is the cornerstone of our commitment to reduce inequalities across different parts of our borough.
The appointment of our Director of Public Health to the role of Corporate Director of Adults, Housing and Health means we are now looking for a talented and high energy public health professional to work closely with him and other members of our Directors Board as part of a Council that has been recognised for excellence through shortlisting at national awards.
To be successful in Thurrock and make a real difference to our communities, you will bring a track record of transformation and integration of complex health and care systems and have excellent influencing and partnership working skills. Your resilience and passion for our communities will be matched by your interest in data, intelligence and analytics. Given the importance of the public health agenda in Thurrock, you will need to develop your credibility with elected members quickly and you will thrive on contributing to agendas from housing and street scene to sustainability and social care.
Above all you will share our passion for a high performing borough that has a long-standing commitment to public health.
