BeyondMe

NAT transforms the UK’s approach to HIV - shaping attitudes, challenging injustice, and changing lives. Join us in developing a new project to improve HIV knowledge at schools, universities, and in the workplace.

Despite our relatively small size, NAT’s reach is significant. Every year on World AIDS Day (1 December), thousands of schools, universities and businesses raise awareness of HIV, and raise vital funds to help us continue our work. This project will take these incredibly powerful raw ingredients, and grow our potential, by developing a project to expand our reach and personal connections. We’ll do this by developing a speakers programme, to work alongside our annual activities.

This is an exciting opportunity to work in partnership to improve knowledge about HIV transmission, and tackle HIV stigma and discrimination across the UK. You will be a key part of our mission to end HIV, and to end HIV stigma, also gaining from the expertise of NAT staff to improve your own companies’ knowledge, policies and procedures.

Working with NAT’s Policy & Campaigns and Fundraising teams, you will help conduct an initial needs assessment to establish the scope and scale for a UK-wide HIV awareness programme in schools, universities and workplaces. This will also include identifying sources of potential speakers to deliver the programme. You will help shape a targeted response to the needs of different audiences.

Using this assessment as a basis, you will identify, and produce the policies, procedures, marketing materials and programme resources needed to pilot a project to increase knowledge of HIV and HIV stigma across the UK, as well as identifying and developing tools to evaluate the programme.

Once set up, the project will see volunteers from companies across the UK take part in an initial training session with NAT staff, before going out into the community to raise awareness of HIV and HIV stigma in partner schools, universities and businesses, identified through the needs assessment process. There will be an opportunity for the team to take part in the piloting of the speakers programme.
