Warrington means business.

Warrington is a thriving, highly-skilled economic powerhouse. It’s a place that doesn’t stand still and over the last 40 years it has evolved from a town with a population of around 70,000 to one which is over 200,000 today.

Nestled between Manchester and Liverpool, it is in an ideal location for those who want to live, work and do business in the region. And, sat in the heart of the North West’s transport network, Warrington is one of the best-connected places in the UK.

New findings by the Office for National Statistics show that the Cheshire and Warrington economy is growing faster than anywhere else in England, and several independent research studies rank it within the top five best performing ‘cities’. Investment and market interest in Warrington is strong and is set to continue.

We have achieved a great deal in recent years. We are now seeking to appoint a new Director of Public Health to enable us to go even further, making measurable differences to the health and wellbeing of our residents. Reporting to our Chief Executive, you will help us reduce inequality in Warrington and will be a driving force in supporting our communities to thrive.

This is a broad, exciting and innovative role that will offer an ambitious Public Health professional the opportunity to make a real impact. We are seeking to appoint a visionary and motivational system- leader, with a proven track record of public health success and extensive experience of partnership working.

As a key member of the Strategic Management Team, the role provides you with the opportunity to really make your mark. Working across the wider health and care system your influence will reach across the borough and beyond.

If you have the ambition and expertise to help us make a real impact in Warrington, then we would love to hear from you. It is important that you are a registered GMC, GDC or UK PHR public health specialist with significant experience in all areas of public health practice.
