Looking for a leadership role in an organisation dedicated to improving the rights of people living with HIV?

We’re the UK’s HIV rights charity. We work to stop HIV from standing in the way of health, dignity and equality, and to end new HIV transmissions. Our expertise, research and advocacy secure lasting change to the lives of people living with and at risk of HIV.

We’re looking for an outstanding individual to join us in a key leadership position, providing strategic direction to both the Policy & Campaigns Team and the Communications Team. You’ll need to be driven by a passion for health equality and human rights and have:

  • Substantial policy and campaigning experience
  • A strong understanding of communications in the voluntary sector
  • Excellent leadership and management skills, and
  • An ability to represent National AIDS Trust at the highest levels.

In return we offer a varied and challenging role working in a supportive and flexible work environment. You will play a key role as a member of our Senior Management Team and will help shape future strategies and plans. 

It’s a time of incredible opportunity in HIV, within an exceptionally challenging external environment. But we have the evidence, the skills, the relationships and the energy to make a real difference. We hope that you’ll want to be part of that.

If you would like to discuss this opportunity informally with Deborah Gold, Chief Executive, please contact Stef McCarthy in the first instance.
