I am Nick Lowden and I am the Senior Workforce Development Officer at PHE North West. I joined the team in May 2021 after working in Greater Manchester developing and supporting workforces that aimed to reduce inactivity. I will bring knowledge and experience from previous roles to support the wider workforces in their role in supporting protecting and improving the nation's health and wellbeing, and reduce health inequalities.

I have been Workforce Development Manager with PHE North West for the past five years working in conjunction with HEE to build capacity and capability in the public health workforce.

Success stories over this time have included the introduction of the UKPHR Practitioner Registration Scheme in the NW and the introduction of the Public Health Degree Apprenticeship.

I look forward to continuing my contribution to the development of the public health workforce and creating new opportunities for those wishing to pursue a career in this area.
