Deputy Director Public Health
Grade: Deputy Director B01
Salary: £80,126 - £119,226 (including inflationary award)
Be Bold, Be Brilliant, Be Birmingham

Ready to be a driving force for good in public health and make a positive impact on the lives of people who live, work, and grow in Birmingham?

Are you a registered public health professional who thrives on innovation and collaboration and is passionate about learning and developing others?

Do you want to work at the heart of a diverse, vibrant, and energetic city with a deep cultural history and be part of building a better future?

If you answered yes to all three questions, we’d love to hear from you.

Public health is a vital part of how we ensure Birmingham continues to thrive and grow. Over the last few years, our public health team has grown from strength to strength – staying resilient in the face of uncertainty, continuously adapting to new ways of working, and delivering support to the communities who needed our help most. But our strength as a team goes beyond the walls of our office. It includes the work we do in the communities we serve, and the work we do alongside our academic, faith, NHS, police, and private sector partners. 

This role is at the heart of the strategic leadership of public health working to strengthen our interagency relationships at a senior level alongside the Director of Public Health, particularly with our academic partners as we work to improve the translation of evidence into practice and with our NHS Integrated Care System as we co-create population health and quality improvement methods. Bringing ethics and governance as core skills, this role leads our continuous improvement approach mobilising behaviours science, social marketing and core public health skills to maximise the impact of our work. 

Our senior officers nurture and inspire the people they work with – from experienced peers, right through to student and graduate interns. This role is key to our learning and development offer to our specialist staff, and those on placement, as well as our nationally commended Bolder Healthier Champion programme. As England’s second city we are committed to creating a pathway from student to specialist consultant and supporting our new Portfolio posts to achieve UKPHR registration and create international medical fellowships are exciting new opportunities to nurture new talent. We’re committed to helping people navigate the evolving world of public health and that commitment extends to you too. We want you to be brilliant and bold so you can give your best to our city.

Birmingham is an ethnically and culturally diverse global city. We’re home to people of all abilities and disabilities, and we have a vibrant LGBTQ+ community. We believe in curious and compassionate leadership that considers diversity and inclusion at every stage of a project. This means taking active steps to be inclusive and supportive of your team – challenging discrimination and helping them to be strong advocates and allies, both to each other and in their work.

We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds but there are some essential requirements you must meet to be able to apply for this role. These are:

  • You must be on the GMC Specialist Register / GDC Specialist List or the UK Public Health Register. If you are not yet on these registers / lists, you must be able to provide verifiable, signed documentation that shows you are within six months of gaining entry at the date of your interview with us.
  • We will consider international candidates who have submitted under the CESR route for GMC Public Health Specialist accreditation and are awaiting approval.
