Health and Wellbeing Officer, Somerset Association of Local Councils (SALC)

Location - Somerset

SALC are seeking to recruit a talented Health and Wellbeing Officer to lead the pioneering health and wellbeing programme for town and parish councils in Somerset.

SALC provides training, advice, and support to over 260 town, parish and city councils across the county and wishes to expand its membership offer as they continue to emerge from the pandemic and see local government reorganisation taking shape in Somerset.

SALC aims to help improve the health and wellbeing of Somerset’s population by providing training and support to parish, town, and city councils; to strengthen the local council sector and further improve strategic engagement between the voluntary and public sectors.

The Health and Wellbeing Officer will administer a grant programme, providing over £700,000 of support to the local council sector over the next three years. You will be leading the programme from the outset, working alongside a small but highly experienced team of local council professionals.

If you already have experience and a track record of delivery in either local government or public health, then this could be the role for you.

In return, SALC offers a competitive salary (£34,373 - £36,371 per annum on a 3-year fixed term contract) and a supportive and flexible working environment.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Tuesday 24th May 2022.
