Health and wellbeing officer (37 hours a week, 3 year fixed-term contract) 

Working in partnership with Somerset County Council, the Somerset Association of Local Councils (SALC) is seeking to recruit a talented health and wellbeing Officer to lead the pioneering health and wellbeing programme for town and parish councils in Somerset. The aim is to help improve the health and wellbeing of Somerset’s population by providing training and support to parish, town and city councils, in addition to strengthening the local council sector and further improving strategic engagement between the voluntary and public sectors. 

The successful candidate will also be administering a grant programme, providing over £700,000 of support to the local council sector over the next three years. They will be leading our programme from the outset, working alongside a small but highly experienced team of local council professionals. SALC provides training, advice, and support to over 260 town, parish and city councils across the county and wishes to expand its membership offer as the county continues to emerge from the pandemic and sees local government reorganisation taking shape in Somerset. 

If you already have experience and a track record of delivery in either local government or public health, then this could be the role for you. In return, SALC will offer a competitive salary (£34,373 to £36,371 per annum) and a supportive and flexible working environment. For further information on this exciting opportunity and details of how to apply, please email: .

Closing date: 24 May 2022 (5pm)
