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:
