PHE is recruiting to two posts:
- Programme manager – NHS Health Check (permanent)

The role of the programme managers is to lead a programme of work and oversee/manage the specific projects which contribute to that work programme on a day-to-day basis. The post holders will be responsible for driving forward existing commitments as well as developing, defining and taking forward new areas of work.
