Job Opening: LA County Public Health – Health Program Analyst

The LA County Department of Public Health (DPH) is opening the Health Program Analyst series for ONE DAY, Thursday May 31, for new applicants to apply.  The HPA series staff fill jobs in diverse divisions of DPH.

 

The Office of Women’s Health is specifically looking for an HPA II to lead our gender based violence work under the direction of myself and our division director. Applying for the HPA II job will not specifically be for the OWH position, but will make that person eligible for our position as well as other positions.

 

We seek someone who fulfills the criteria below but who also has knowledge and experience in intimate partner violence, sexual violence, human trafficking, and/or child abuse and a passion for women’s health. If an applicant only meets the criteria for an HPA I but has the skills we need, we can also hire someone at the HPA I level.

 

Please see the County links at the bottom of this email to find all the information on where and how to apply. Job requirements are listed below.

 

Thank you for your assistance in helping us find a great candidate.
