Job Description


We are looking to recruit 3 Health Improvement Coaches to support the development and delivery of our tier 2 adult weight management service in the Public Health team at Wiltshire Council.

This is a unique opportunity for those that are passionate about weight management and supporting and engaging people to make healthy lifestyle changes and tackling health inequalities.
