The starting salary for this role is £45,734 per annum based on a 36 hour working week.
We are currently recruiting to the following two Programme and Policy Manager vacancies:
- 1 X fixed term (12 months) post focused on mental health and emotional wellbeing
- 1 X fixed term (12 months) post focused on wider determinants of health (with the potential to be made permanent)
Surrey County Council is seeking to recruit two Programme and Policy Managers (Health and Wellbeing) to contribute to improved outcomes for those living and working in Surrey. This will be through effective coordination of health and wellbeing programmes within the Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which aims to reduce health inequalities so no-one is left behind in Surrey.
Located within Public Health, you will provide policy and programme management expertise to support health and wellbeing related partnership programmes. Oversight and an enabling approach will be needed for key projects and programmes that feature as part of the recently refreshed Health and Wellbeing Strategy. The two roles available will have respective focus upon Priority Two – ‘Supporting people’s mental health and emotional well-being’ and Priority Three – ‘Addressing the wider determinants of health’.
You will have demonstrable relevant experience and the ability to deal with the changing political and policy context. As well as this, you will be capable of managing the needs of different stakeholders, overseeing a wide range of relationships through collaboration with officers, elected members, partners, people who use our services, their carers, and residents. An understanding of our principles of community capacity building, co-design, co-production and community-led action and how they can be applied is also vital.
With a degree and/or other relevant qualifications, you will have proven political awareness along with negotiating, influencing and leadership skills. You will be able to work on your own initiative whilst working flexibly with senior managers and stakeholders on behalf of the Council and wider system.
If you are enthusiastic about working in this role, with the above skills and a good understanding of the changing health and social care environment, then we want to hear from you.
This role is open to remote working meaning you aren't required in the office 5 days a week. We’re less about you driving to work and more about us collectively driving down our carbon footprint. We care about how you work rather than where you work; the people rather than the postcode. In support of our people and our greener futures strategies, we’d welcome a conversation with the successful candidate on what remote working may look like for you.
