The UK Faculty of Public Health (FPH) is full of people who are passionate about improving people’s lives.
We’re a small charity with around 20-25 paid staff at any one time. But every so often new opportunities arise for people to join the staff team and help to make a difference.
Our organisation is built on our values so before deciding if you want to apply for one of the vacancies listed below, please make sure you read about our values and behaviours.
If you are interviewing for a position at FPH, please read our privacy notice for job applicants to align with current GDPR legislation.
Regional Wellbeing Champions
The Faculty is seeking to recruit at least 13 Wellbeing Champions to raise awareness at regional level of the individual and systemic factors that impact on wellbeing, offer support, gather local and national resources on wellbeing, promote wellbeing best practice, and advise on the Faculty's wellbeing strategy.
FPH actively seeks to have a diverse and representative group of Wellbeing Champions. As such, all Practitioners, Members and Fellows are encouraged to apply.
The Faculty is looking for more members to become involved in its Diplomate examination.
Being a DFPH examiner is a vital and rewarding role within the Faculty and has a crucial impact in maintaining the high standards of public health practice for which the UK is rightly renowned. The delivery of the exam has changed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and is now sat online with typed scripts, which are much easier to mark, with remote invigilation through a third party.
The Diplomate Exam (formerly the Part A exam) is a crucial milestone in the training pathway of a Public Health Specialty Registrar and is designed as a test of a broad base of public health knowledge. The exam is open to Specialty Registrars and also to candidates not on the training scheme, who typically constitute about ten per cent of the applicants. It is crucial to expanding the public health workforce. Applications to become an examiner would be welcome from any locality, but we are particularly looking for representation from the Defence Medical Services, Yorkshire & the Humber and Northern Ireland.
The time commitment is approximately eight days per year. Examiners meet in person a few times a year for training, question setting and results review. Examiners are also asked to develop exam questions, working in collaboration with other examiners. Members doing this role have found it both challenging and rewarding, with the opportunity to think about an area of public outside of their usual ‘day job' and the opportunity to connect with other examiners a key driver.
The website has further information on the role and the expectations. If you are interested in applying, please email your CV to email@example.com with some information on your public health training experience and which particular area of the exam you are interested in, and we look forward to you joining the team.
