NAT has an excellent track record of successfully influencing legislation and national policies which affect people living with HIV in the UK. Our organisation is credible, influential, financially stable and effective.

We are now seeking a new Trustee with senior communications expertise and contacts expertise to join our Board of Trustees, as well as the Fundraising Sub-Committee.

The time commitment is to attend 8 meetings a year, one away day, and reasonable availability to support staff with ad hoc advice. The position is unremunerated but we pay reasonable travel expenses.

Are you a migrant living with HIV? Do you want to help ensure better HIV prevention and treatment for migrants? NAT is recruiting two people living with HIV who have experience of the UK’s immigration system to support a new project we are conducting on migration and HIV.

NAT is the UK's leading charity dedicated to transforming society's response to HIV.  We provide fresh thinking, expertise and practical resources.  We champion the rights of people living with HIV and campaign for change.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with NAT to bring about change. NAT works on a wide range of issues that affect people living with HIV, focusing on five strategic goals:

  • Effective HIV prevention to halt the spread of HIV
  • Early diagnosis of HIV through ethical, accessible and appropriate testing
  • Equitable access to treatment, care and support for people living with HIV
  • Enhanced understanding of the facts about HIV and living with HIV in the UK
  • Eradication of HIV-related stigma and discrimination.


As a migrant living with HIV, you will help NAT conduct research into the main issues affecting migrants at risk of or living with HIV. You will be a member of the research team that is collecting experiences from migrants living with HIV.

You do not need to have experience of research or policy to apply for this role, as we are looking for people who can help us shape this project through their personal experiences. We can be flexible with location and hours to work around your existing commitments. Some of the work will take place in our office in Highgate or at other venues in London, however the dates will be decided with you. If you are passionate about our cause and the project, then we encourage you to apply.

If you have any questions regarding this role then please get in touch and we will be happy to help.

We are accepting applications on a rolling basis from January 2020. Ideally, we would like the Peer Experts to join the team as soon as possible. Please call us on 020 7814 6767 if you have any questions about the position.

If we think that you would be a good match for this role, we will invite you to meet us to discuss your application and to tell you more about the project.

NAT is committed to equality and diversity and due to the nature of this role, only people living with HIV with experience of the UK’s immigration system are eligible to apply. We welcome applications from disabled people and are committed to making reasonable adjustments wherever possible.
