Senior Project Worker – HIV Street Support

We’re recruiting a Senior Project Worker to establish and deliver a new HIV Street Support Project.

Funded by The National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund, the project aims to respond to the current HIV outbreak in Glasgow by providing a street support service for people who inject drugs.

The project will provide one-to-one support, ensuring people receive information and help to manage their chronic health needs, and will break down barriers that prevent people from accessing essential healthcare services. The project will also adopt a preventative approach, providing harm reduction advice and information to those at risk of HIV. The overall aim is for people to live fuller, healthier and longer lives.

The Senior Project Worker will split their time between service delivery and management responsibilities for a full time Project Worker and part time Peer Support Worker.

We are looking for someone who has a strong track record of working with vulnerable people with multiple and complex needs, who has good team management skills and experience of line management, and who is passionate about working with communities to improve the health and wellbeing of vulnerable people in Scotland. If that sounds like you then we would love to hear from you.

In return, we offer a supportive and valuing work environment with encouragement to develop personally and professionally.

Closing date: 5pm, Monday 1 October
Interview date: Wednesday 10 October
