We are recruiting two full time Health Trainers (37 hours per week) to work in and around the Salisbury and Amesbury area and a part time (18.5 hours per week) health trainer to work in the Warminster area.
Health Trainers support people in taking responsibility for improving their own health.

You will contribute to tackling inequalities in health through promoting and supporting people to develop healthier behaviours and lifestyles. Your role focuses on engaging with communities who are marginalised and who experience the greatest inequalities in health.
