PO11, SCP 54 – 57, £58,422 – £61,672 per annum

 

BHA for Equality, from its inception 30 years ago, has worked successfully with grass root and marginalised communities to address health inequalities. We have built a prominent national reputation in delivering creative and innovative interventions with local community networks. However, the current health and social care landscape is rapidly changing, with more focus on providing place-based care informed by local needs. There is a significant emphasis on collaboration across health and social care systems, and on prevention, health and wellbeing promotion.

Over the next few years, we want to build our capacity to identify issues, understand the causes and work with various actors to deliver solutions. We also recognise that it is essential to leverage digital technologies to engage with stakeholders and to make our work more effective and efficient. Our current CEO, Dr Priscilla Nkwenti, who has been instrumental in the success of BHA, is retiring from her role in March 2021. We are, therefore, looking for an inspirational and motivated leader to inspire our current team of staff and volunteers make to greater use of research and digital technologies. This is a full-time role. It will suit a person with experience of working with Black, Asian and other marginalised and disadvantaged populations, particularly with respect to addressing health and social care inequalities, and in digital leadership. Experience in community engagement, negotiation and communication to publics and at a senior level will be advantageous.
