Digital Officer at the UK Faculty of Public Health
Do you want to play a pivotal role in helping the UK Faculty of Public Health to reach more people and improve the health and wellbeing of local and national populations in the UK and around the world?
We are looking for an outstanding Digital Officer to join our Policy and Communications Team.
What do you need to know about the role?
The Digital Officer post is a new role in FPH’s Policy and Comms Team. We’ve just refreshed our website and we’re keen to make the most of it while also dramatically improving awareness of, and engagement with, FPH and the work we do in the digital space.
You’ll be at the centre of our efforts to transform our digital output for the whole organisation. Working alongside the Senior Media and Comms Officer and Director of Policy and Comms, you’ll create and communicate compelling digital content that our members and the wider health community want to read, engage with, and share.
The role covers all aspects of the work we do, including supporting our campaigning work, promoting our services, and celebrating the vital work our members do every day to improve the public’s health.
Our members work in a range of settings on an even wider range of public health topics – everything from tobacco to transport, children’s health to climate change, and violence to viruses.
You’ll need to be able to work collaboratively in project teams working across the organisation. You will also need to have a strategic and creative brain and be able to prioritise effectively. We want you to spend your time creating and communicating impactful content that gives us the most ‘bang for our buck’.
We’re also looking for someone who is as ambitious for their own professional development as they are to help FPH to develop and grow. Most of all we want you to have fun and challenge yourself at work.

What do you need to know about FPH?
The UK Faculty of Public Health (FPH) is a membership organisation for nearly 4,000 public health professionals across the UK and around the world. We are also a registered charity.
Our role is to improve the health and wellbeing of local communities and national populations. We do this by supporting the training and development of public health professionals, encouraging and promoting new research and understanding of public health, and by campaigning to improve public health policy and practice at a local, national and international level.
Everyone who works at FPH is passionate about improving people’s lives. The Policy and Comms Team is relatively small (five full-time staff) but we work closely with our expert members who are active in developing and delivering our agenda.
At the beginning of the year the Policy and Comms Team led a successful campaign involving 64 health organisations, seeking to ensure Brexit ‘does no harm’ to the public’s health.
We’ve just launched a photography competition, #PublicHealthLooksLike, to celebrate what our members do and communicate the breadth and importance of what public health is today.
And right now we’re campaigning to ensure prevention is a core part of the new NHS long-term plan and that public health services are properly funded in next year’s spending review.
