Duties:

* National and local guidance has been complex and fast-changing during the COVID-19 pandemic. We need to continue to communicate with residents, businesses, partners and providers, about preventing the spread of coronavirus.

Part of the role will also be to be reactive to changing trends identified by data received on a weekly basis and to communicate new guidelines clearly as they change.

* This role will also support promotion of the national flu campaign, encouraging Council staff to take up the offer of vaccination and reminding social care providers about the importance of protecting their staff.

Skills and experience:

Good understanding of the local government and health system landscape.

Ability to work at pace in a complex system and communicate effectively with a wide-range of stakeholders.
