HIV Scotland is excited to advertise this new role to help lead a new programmes strand of our work. In the main, these programmes have been started in response to COVID-19, but we hope they will become a permanent part of our work supporting people living with and affected by HIV. It is an exciting and unique opportunity to lead on programmes such as HIV Self Test Scotland, Life Coaching and a whole suite of new initiatives focused at improving wellbeing and reducing social isolation among people that we service. We want to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of people living with and affected by HIV.

You will work closely with the rest of our small team – feeding in to fundraising, policy, research, events, community engagement, volunteering and communications to help grow our programmes, shout about our success and share learning and best practice. You will be a good team player with a flexible approach and excellent communication and interpersonal skills.


We are offering extremely flexible conditions for this role – you will be working from home for the foreseeable future and you can choose the hours that suit you. We can offer full-time, part-time or job-share opportunities for this role. You will receive 25-day annual leave entitlement, with up to 10 public holidays (depending on when they fall). Our workplace focuses on performance, not hours at the desk – making HIV Scotland a truly flexible work environment. We offer a full employment benefit programme, which can include discounted gym and spa membership at our partner – the Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel. HIV Scotland also offers an Employer Pension Scheme with 6% employer contributions.


HIV Scotland is an equal opportunity employer. Access to the office is only via a staircase. We apologise for this barrier but if it does causes any concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss options.
