Job Details

This three year full time post funded by the Health Foundation will focus on the health inequalities affecting particular groups of young people.

The Association for Young People’s Health (AYPH) is the UK’s independent voice for young people’s health. We work across the UK with healthcare providers, young people and academics to improve services for young people, promote evidence based practice and increase communication between different sectors.

The AYPH/HF Inequalities Policy Fellow will be responsible for an exciting programme of activities designed to take the lead in raising understanding of health inequalities in the 12-24 age group.

We want you to spearhead a new movement to get the issue on policy agendas and to the attention of front line practitioners. This will include producing new and innovative resources to help people get a grasp on the issues, bringing people and sectors together to break down barriers, and galvanising thinking about solutions. You will need excellent research and policy skills and relevant experience, and you will have a strong commitment to young people and the ability to work effectively as part of a small team.

The post provides the exciting opportunity to work alongside four other similar policy fellows, the Health Foundation and senior AYPH staff, in order improve outcomes for young people.
