Job Details

Obesity is rarely out of the political and media agenda, with comprehensive government policy needed to stem the flood of unhealthy food in our environment and address the rising tide of related ill health.

The Obesity Health Alliance (OHA), is a coalition of leading health organisations (including Cancer Research UK, British Heart Foundation and medical royal colleges), hosted by Diabetes UK. We work together to influence government policies on healthy weight and have campaigned successfully for landmark evidence-based policies including the soft drinks tax and restrictions on junk food advertising.

The OHA is looking for an experienced and passionate new leader to direct the alliance through its next stage of influencing government policy. This is a high-profile role, working with an established and effective coalition with the opportunity to secure significant change to improve population health.
