International HIV/AIDS Alliance Vacancy: International Trustee - United Kingdom

International HIV/AIDS Alliance Vacancy: International Trustee - United Kingdom

The International HIV/AIDS Alliance works with communities through local, national and global action on HIV, health and human rights. Our vision is a world without AIDS.  Since 1994, the Alliance and its partners have supported over 3,000 projects, in over 40 countries, reaching millions of people.

We are recruiting an international trustee for our UK-based charity, which serves as the international secretariat, to lead the Alliance through its ambitious programme to help curb the epidemic and ensure universal access to comprehensive HIV services.

We are looking for individuals with an interest in international development issues and HIV/AIDS and a strong belief in the values of the Alliance – that the lives of all human beings are of equal value and everyone has the right to access the HIV information and services they need for a healthy life. Individuals do not need to be based in the UK to be considered.

We are specifically seeking individuals with experience working in development cooperation, specifically working for aid agencies or authorities in the following countries: Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway.  

Good communication skills in English are essential. Personal experience of the impact of HIV/AIDS is desirable.

This is an unpaid appointment, but expenses to twice-yearly Board meetings in Brighton (UK) and any relevant country visits will be reimbursed. Trustees are appointed for an initial term of three years, but may be re-appointed for two further terms.
