  • Support ethnic minority leaders to contribute to shaping local policies and services
  • Support inter-community events

 

Tackle inequalities

  • Research and develop new communication channels for public health messages, recognising that ethnic minority voices and leadership are integral to shaping the discussions and decision making in tacking health inequalities and wellbeing challenges.
  • Explore the potential for clinics and surgeries targeted at ethnic minority communities

 

This role is diverse and requires the following:

  • Experience in a similar environment. The ability to deliver work with communities
  • Good project delivery experience
  • Proven line management skills
  • The ability to multi-task within a dynamic, fast paced, and changing environment
  • A “can do” attitude with innovative ideas and the ability to overseeing the delivery of services on time, efficiently and in accordance with relevant key performance indicators, ensuring a high-quality customer focus service at all times

 

What you can expect:

 

  • A salary between £22,183 – £23,541
  • A base in Colchester but there is flexibility with working location
  • 28 days holiday plus an extra day’s holiday for your birthday
