Fast-Track Cities Community Panel Member

We are looking for people living with HIV to represent their community as a part of a global network. The ideal community panel member is passionate about making real change to the lives of people living with HIV in Scotland, and keen to share their views on what needs to happen.


Job Title: Fast-Track Cities Community Panel Member
Salary: £13.81 per hour
Hours of work: Sessional (10 hours per year)
Duration: One year
Location: Hybrid Working (virtual meeting and in-person events)
Closing date: 5pm Monday 13 February

Scotland currently has the goal of zero new HIV transmissions by 2030, and the voices of people living with HIV are vital in reaching this target. 

To ensure that people living with HIV have a say in the work of Fast-Track Cities Scotland, we are setting up a community panel made up of people with lived experience of HIV in Scotland. The purpose of the community panel will be to: 

  • Provide a platform for people living with HIV to discuss the issues that affect their lives most 
  • Give feedback and recommendations to Fast-Track Cities Scotland on what we can do to best improve the lives of people living with HIV in Scotland and end HIV transmission 
  • Act as a representative body for people living with HIV in Scotland 
  • Influence and inform local and national policy and campaigns. 

We are looking for passionate, motivated people who want to make real change to the lives of their communities. No related experience is necessary. This is an opportunity for people living with HIV to engage politically in the decisions that affect their lives. 

We are looking for 2-3 people from the following cities/council areas: Glasgow (including Greater Glasgow & Clyde), Edinburgh, Dundee & Tayside, and Aberdeen & Grampian

You will be asked to gather information and opinions from people living with HIV in your city/council area and bring this to the panel for discussion. Support and training from Waverley Care and local organisations can be provided. 

There will be local committees in each city who will work on Fast-Track Cities consisting of representatives from the NHS, third sector and local authorities. The community panel will be an essential part of these committees and will provide a voice for people living with HIV. The local committees will then bring the issues and information discussed at the local level to the national meetings with all Fast-Track Cities in Scotland. 

The community panel will meet four to six times a year, with a mix of virtual and in-person meetings. The estimated amount of time you will dedicate to the community panel is 10 hours per year, however this may vary. Participants will be reimbursed for their time at Waverley Care’s sessional staff rate of £13.81 per hour. Reasonable travel expenses will also be covered. 

 

How to Apply

If you are interested in joining the community panel, please email Anna at anna.cowan@waverleycare.org and express your interest. We will then set up a call to discuss the role and to answer any questions you may have. Please get in touch by 12pm on February 13th, 2022
