Vacancy: Public Health Improvement Coordinator – ‘Walk with Me’ Research Project

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.
