The Role  

Glasgow Centre for Population Health (GCPH) is a research and development centre of national and international repute. The Centre is funded directly by the Scottish Government and overseen by a Management Board consisting of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, University of Glasgow and Glasgow City Council. 

The role offers a high profile and rewarding career opportunity with the chance to help shape the strategic vision and influence national and local public health policy and practice through building understanding, generating evidence and yielding fresh thinking and insights into how to improve population health and tackle inequality in Glasgow and beyond.  

Through inspirational leadership and a culture of continuous improvement, you will guide the Centre and its team of 26 staff to deliver first-class scientific research and policy analysis on population health, commissioning, co-ordinating and implementing a range of research programmes to support the strategic aims of partner agencies and delivery of the objectives set out in the GCPH Workplan.  

As much of the work is influenced by the national Public Health Agenda this post requires someone with a high level of political awareness and the personal credibility to quickly gain respect and influence both internal and external stakeholders. A key responsibility will be to extend the network of involvement in the Centre, both nationally and internationally, building the Centre’s profile and reputation so that its reach and influence continues to grow. 

Reporting to the Board’s Director of Public Health, and as a member of the Public Health Directorate’s Senior Management Team, you will also contribute to the delivery of the wider NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s business objectives.

We are looking for an exceptional candidate

We are looking for an accomplished manager with proven experience and an impressive track record in public health research, a recognised leader in health, or a related field, operating at or close to Board level and with evidence of successful partnership influence.

You will also have the experience of developing communication strategies, plans and campaigns, and engaging with a wide range of stakeholder groups, to publicise research findings and promote improved public health.
