Director post

08 June 2022

An exciting opportunity to join and lead our team.

Following the retiral of our previous director, we are now recruiting for a new permanent Director to lead the GCPH.

Through inspirational leadership and a culture of continuous improvement, the post will guide our work and team of 26 staff to deliver first-class scientific research and policy analysis on population health. This involves 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.

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

As much of our work is influenced by the national Public Health Agenda, the role requires someone with a high level of political awareness and the personal credibility to quickly gain the respect of 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 our reach and influence continues to grow.
