Head of Programme - ADPH London

Do you want to develop your career and help improve the health of Londoners? Our sector-leading, public health partnership is looking for a Head of Programme.

12 month fixed-term or secondment (maternity cover)

 

About the role

The Head of Programme role offers a unique opportunity to deliver change, improvement and innovation on a regional footprint, working closely with chief officers across all London boroughs and with other London partners, including London Councils, the GLA, the NHS, as well as with national partners.

This is a complex and stretching role, where you will apply programme design and delivery, partnership working, policy and strategy, service improvement, systems thinking, strong financial management, team leadership, and communication skills. The role offers an excellent opportunity to develop your personal profile and build strong professional networks.

About You

We are looking for a motivated, professional and experienced public sector manager, with a track record of developing and delivering change programmes, in a fast-paced and complex environment. A background in public health is not essential; you will bring strategic and political awareness, with an eye for improvement and efficiency, in order to inform our work and capitalise on opportunities.

A natural collaborator, you will be able to influence and challenge at all levels, spot connections, and bring a systems leadership perspective. As a trusted advisor to chief officers on politically sensitive issues, you will have excellent communication skills and the ability to gain confidence of the people you work with.

To be successful you will need to bring personal resilience and flexibility and be comfortable with regularly working independently. You will bring a supportive and coaching management style, resulting in a high performing and well regarded team.

Benefits

We offer a local authority pension and a healthy work-life balance with flexible working hours, work from home days, generous annual leave, and an interest free travel loan.
We are committed to our employees and offer many opportunities for professional development. This includes training, shadowing and mentoring. You will be part of a wide professional network, across London and the UK.
