Faculty advisers

Faculty Advisers and Training Programme Directors are the appropriate people to contact with queries concerning training in public health and any specific career enquiries.

Working/training in the UK

Please contact the Faculty Adviser for your region/country or the area you are interested in working in.

Employers should contact Faculty Advisers at an early stage in the appointment process for all senior public health posts at consultant or equivalent level.

If you are overseas and wish to work in the UK, the International Faculty Adviser or their deputy will be able to provide you with advice on the process.

Working/training outside the UK

If you are based in the UK but interested in working overseas, the International Faculty Adviser or their deputy will be able to provide you with advice on the process.

For details of training and career opportunities in specific countries or parts of the world, please contact the relevant Overseas Regional Adviser. Unfortunately the advisers are not in a position to advise on recruitment to consultant/specialist posts.
