Healthier Together is the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) for Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG). We are a partnership committed to work together on improving health and care in BNSSG. The Healthier Together Office is the central function coordinating our system’s evolution towards becoming an Integrated Care System.

Such ambitions come with new challenges and uncharted waters to orienteer, and therefore we are looking for exceptional individuals who can support delivery of large scale transformational change, within a complex system wide environment, balanced with proven integrity and humility, who role model value-based leadership and have the track record to command the confidence of senior leaders, those in frontline delivery, through to users and consumers of our services today and in the future.

We are seeking a creative and enthusiastic communications and engagement professional to join the Healthier Together team to cover maternity leave for 12 months. The ideal candidate will take change in their stride and be happy to work independently but also able to build strong relationships with communications and engagement peers from across our partners. From developing website copy and editing newsletters, to managing panel surveys and supporting communications campaigns – you will need to be a good all-rounder with a varied skillset or willingness to develop expertise rapidly.

This is a great role to further develop your communications and engagement leadership skills while having the opportunity to work at a system level.
