Welcome to Public Health Wales, the national public health agency in Wales. We exist to protect and improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities for people in Wales.

We welcome applications from people who share our values of working together, with trust and respect, to make a difference. 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Registered Nurse or Senior Public Health Practitioner to join the successful Vaccine Preventable Disease Programme (VPDP). We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic individual with experience in public health and research.

As part of the Public Health agenda, the post holder will contribute to the development and provision of service research and development initiatives to optimise immunisation outcomes at a national level, especially in relation to vulnerable populations. You will also provide evidence-based advice to health boards on improving outcomes at local level including reducing variation and inequity in vaccination uptake in Vulnerable Populations.

The post will predominantly be office-based requiring excellent IT skills supporting several aspects of the national programme work, and will require a degree of flexibility taking the lead in specific VPDP work-streams for service research and development.

You will be based in our Cardiff office at Capital Quarter 2, which is only a short walk from Cardiff Central Railway Station.

We offer some great benefits which include a minimum 27 days holiday pro-rata (rising as your service grows) and a competitive Pension options scheme. To see a comprehensive list of benefits, please refer to our Working for Us home page.

If you are highly motivated, an experienced and qualified nurse or senior public health practitioner with a strong demonstrable background in public health and research, then we are keen to hear from you.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
