We are looking for a Senior Programme Development Manager (Public Health) to join our growing Food and Health Team. ShareAction is committed to working with investors and the companies they invest in to build and sustain a fair, just and healthy society. It is our ambition to build on our work on food and health, good work and climate change to create a broad health programme called ‘Long-term Investors in Public Health’ (LIPH). LIPH will build a coalition of investors committed to building a healthier society and reducing health inequalities.
COVID-19 has reminded us all how much individual and societal health matters, and how intrinsic it is to our economic wellbeing. At ShareAction, we want to capitalise on this moment and ensure that businesses, and their investors, play a crucial role in ensuring we achieve a healthy recovery.
This is a unique opportunity to design and lead a six-month scoping study to test and refine this concept. The successful applicant will conduct extensive stakeholder consultation and carry out desk-based research to develop a long-term plan for the programme.
