Job Details

Health Equals is a collaboration of people and organisations who want equal opportunity for health and wellbeing for everyone. Through powerful and evidence-based campaigns, we want to start a conversation about health and wellbeing that recognises the importance of the building blocks of health – and together make sure action is taken to prioritise these in policy, to ultimately create better health for people.  Whilst embedded in and funded by the Health Foundation, Health Equals members and supporters are central to our reach and credibility.   

Could you develop and maintain society-changing relationships across sectors, ensuring that Health Equals members are engaged and active in supporting Health Equals public awareness campaigns and policy goals? 

Could you lead on developing and implementing a strategy and engagement programme to ensure that Health Equals has a high-calibre membership that is balanced across sectors, and provides influence with policy makers and reach into the public?

We’re looking for an experienced policy professional who is excellent at stakeholder engagement across all levels.  With a keen interest in delivering change through collaboration, this role includes engaging with members to develop well-evidenced policy asks, developing and delivering influencing plans and campaigns collectively, and informing the development of public facing campaigns to promote policies which will improve health and reduce inequalities across the UK.

About Us

Health is our most precious asset. Good health and wellbeing enables us to live happy, fulfilling lives and frees us up to achieve our potential. It fuels our prosperity – a healthy and productive labour force is the engine that powers our economy. And it helps to build a stronger society by enabling us to play a full part in family life, make social connections and contribute to our communities. 

Our health is shaped by a range of factors including our early life, the work we do and the income we earn, the education we receive and the homes and places we live in. The health and care system should support good health and wellbeing by enabling everyone to access the high-quality treatment, care and support they need, when they need it.  

Yet, good health remains out of reach for too many people in the UK. Improvements in life expectancy have slowed. We compare poorly with other leading nations on some important aspects of our health, such as cancer and heart disease. Deep inequalities in health between our poorest and wealthiest communities have widened. Meanwhile, health and care services are under huge pressure and struggling to provide access to timely, high-quality care. 

It doesn’t have to be like this. By valuing our health as an asset, investing in health and care services and focusing on the wider factors that shape our health and drive inequalities, we can build a healthier nation.
