Director of Public Health
We are busy towns and cities, port communities, rural villages and have the longest coastline of any county in Britain. We are also critical to the country’s growth agenda. We are Essex.
The strength of Essex is its people and we are here to nurture a safer, better connected society that empowers our residents and celebrates the county’s diversity. We want to work locally to create homes not houses, places not developments and communities not estates.
As our new DPH you will thrive on the opportunity to work as part of the economy, investment, and public health directorate and the impact this can have on the wider determinants of health. Reporting to the Chief Executive, and with a dotted line to the Executive Director, Economy, Investment and Public Health, you will be a member of the corporate leadership team of the Council. Your portfolio will extend far beyond your statutory public health responsibilities, to cover our traveller unit, trading standards and strengthening communities.
