Are you interested in working in local government to influence planning as a wider determinant of health?

Our vision is to promote a future where everyone in Southampton is able to live, work and play in an environment that promotes health and wellbeing, sustains the development of supportive and active communities, and helps reduce health inequalities.

In this role you will provide specialist support and technical advice to Southampton City Council on spatial planning for health issues, including leading on the health and wellbeing input to the new Southampton City Vision Local Plan to ensure it promotes effective planning and design for healthier places. You will provide leadership and advocacy on spatial planning for health, build strong partnerships within and outside the Council to the benefit of public health outcomes, and utilise research evidence to inform the Strategic Planning team on how best to develop and influence policy. Working with the Public Health Team to address the wider determinants of health, you will promote the reduction of health inequalities and meet the diverse needs and aspirations of communities across the life-course.
