Current positions

Chief Executive

Salary circa £80,000 per annum, including London Weighting
Flexible working arrangement: mix of home and London office working

National AIDS Trust is seeking a new Chief Executive to build on the considerable achievements of Deborah Gold and provide positive, inclusive and credible leadership to the organisation.

National AIDS Trust is 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. 

There is a unique opportunity to end transmissions in the UK, but our work goes far beyond this, helping frame HIV as a health and social justice issue which continues to be linked to inequalities in UK society today.

Since 1987 our work has kept HIV on the agenda, driving change, and improving the lives of people affected by HIV. Our expertise, research and advocacy secure lasting change to the lives of people living with and at risk of HIV. We do this by influencing those whose actions have the biggest impact on the lives of people living with HIV in the UK. We tackle the root causes of issues, driving change and making a difference for the whole community.

Our track record of impact includes successfully challenging NHS England’s decision not to fund the HIV prevention pill, PrEP; securing free access to HIV treatment for everyone in the UK, meaning that more than 78% of people living with HIV are doing well on treatment and can’t pass the virus on because of their medication; bringing about the end of the discriminatory lifetime ban on gay men donating blood and making it illegal to ask an applicant about their HIV status before offering them a job.

Our work with the Terrence Higgins Trust and Elton John AIDS Foundation led to the Government producing a far-reaching HIV Action Plan, including the biggest expansion in HIV prevention in the last ten years and a commitment reach the goal of ending new cases of HIV in the UK by 2030.

Our organisation punches well above its weight, and makes a difference to the lives of tens of thousands of people living with HIV.

As part of our continued evolution, we're seeking a new Chief Executive to build on the considerable achievements of Deborah Gold and provide positive, inclusive and credible leadership to the organisation. Working with a high calibre, engaged trustee board, this role will shape the culture, strategy and partnerships of the organisation, in order to ensure that National AIDS Trust helps more people, more effectively by keeping a relentless focus on effectiveness, quality and efficiency.
