External Job Opportuntities for Registrants

 
 

Specialist Members –
UK Nutrition and Health Claims Committee (UKNHCC)

While the UK Government anticipates a negotiated exit from the European Union, as a contingency for a ‘no deal’ exit, Public Health England (PHE) is looking to appoint up to 8 specialist members to a UK Nutrition and Health Claims Committee (UKNHCC).  The UKNHCC will be a UK wide Committee set up in the event that the UK can no longer access advice from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to assume the responsibility for the scientific substantiation and provision of advice to the four UK administrations on any new nutrition and health claims made within the UK post exit.

 

In order to have a functional committee in place should the contingency need to be enacted, it is necessary to commence application processes in advance of exit negotiations being completed. Applicants should be aware that if it becomes clear during negotiations that a new Committee is no longer required the recruitment process will cease.

 

The Committee will meet up to six times per year.  The specialist members will be expected to assess the validity of scientific evidence underpinning applications for nutrition and health claims made to/in the UK after exit.

 

Applications for membership are sought from nutritionists, clinicians and researchers with expertise in at least one of the following:

•           Nutrition

•           Nutritional epidemiology

•           Human medicine

•           Infant nutrition

•           Paediatrics

•           Dietary exposure assessment

Candidates should have a good understanding of the public health nutrition aspects of their area of expertise with a track record of significant achievement and personal effectiveness and the ability to contribute robust technical views. Applicants directly employed by Industry will not be eligible to apply. PHE welcomes applications from within and outside the UK.

 

Remuneration will be £500 per day (up to 24 days per year, including up to 6 meetings). Remuneration for the chair will be £500 per day (up to 18 days reading/preparation per year) and £550 a day for chairing meetings (up to 6 meetings per year). PHE’s Senior Responsible Officer will determine the length of appointments, which will be up to a maximum of 3 years.
