About the role

This is a senior management role, either full time or part time, and the successful applicant's work pattern will include on-call weekend shifts.

This is a highly complex role providing additional specialist reactive resource and strategic leadership in the local response to COVID-19 across Bedford Borough Council, Central Bedfordshire Council and Milton Keynes Council, working closely with partners.

•           Provide leadership for broader, related health protection work areas such as immunisation and screening, seeking assurance from key stakeholders and ensuring appropriate plans are in place

The role requires a high level of intellectual rigour, negotiation skills, motivational ability and the flexibility to deal with complex public health issues as they arise. A high level of tact, diplomacy and political awareness is also required; along with the ability to understand organisational cultures, to enable effective working across organisational boundaries and to influence without direct authority.
