Assistant Chief Executive's
Newcastle upon Tyne
Public Health Analyst
£31,601 - £35,444 per annum
37 hours per week.
Newcastle City Council is seeking to appoint a Public Health Analyst to provide public health intelligence expertise to the Public Health Team, the wider Council, and to our partners.
You will provide input and advice into understanding the health needs of the population, addressing health inequalities, determining priorities for action, and contributing to an understanding of the wider determinants of health.
A key focus will be to support key business processes such as needs assessment, equity audits and health impact assessments as well as the development of the Newcastle Future Needs Assessment. You will also have a key role in relation to the performance monitoring of public health programmes and outcomes and will work across departments and directorates to embed public health performance measures into corporate and directorate reporting requirements.
Applications are sought from individuals with a postgraduate qualification or equivalent experience in a public health intelligence, research or related field. You must have highly developed analytical skills and a qualification in epidemiology or statistics is desirable. Knowledge and experience of working with health and demographic data sources and statistical techniques relevant to the analysis and interpretation of health data sets is more important than technical skills in the use of software.
The role will be challenging and varied and you will need to be flexible, able to work autonomously, and prioritise workload to meet conflicting deadline.
You will also need excellent oral and written communication skills, and the ability to present complex public health intelligence to a wide range of audiences in ways that are accessible, meaningful and appropriate for use.
For an informal discussion please contact Claire Toas, Public Health Intelligence Specialist on 0191 2783914 or Sohail Bhatti, Public Health Consultant on 0191 2113635.
