The Institute of Public Health (IPH) is currently recruiting for a Public Health Improvement Coordinator role for a joint research initiative with Ulster University.
The Institute is working alongside our partners at Ulster University to deliver the ‘Walk With Me’ research programme. This intervention-based, grant funded research seeks to recruit 348 inactive older adults aged 60 years and over living in socio-economically disadvantaged communities, mainly through General Practices and community groups. The intervention aims to determine if a peer mentor can help older adults increase their physical activity over one year compared to a control group.
As part of this research programme, IPH wishes to recruit a Public Health Improvement Coordinator on a two-year, fixed term basis. The role is grant-funded under the ‘Walk with Me’ programme and will require the successful candidate to work closely with our partners at Ulster University on this exciting programme of intervention-based research.
The role will be based at our Belfast office and will require travel across Northern Ireland. IPH offer a hybrid working model with some days on-site at our office and the remainder worked remotely in the jurisdiction.
Please refer to the Candidate Booklet on our website for full details of this role, including remuneration, key duties and responsibilities, in addition to the essential skills and experience required for this role.
The Institute may form a panel from successful candidates to fill future vacancies.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Tuesday, 19th July.
