About the post

This is a newly created role to support the growing work of the Communications and Policy team with Waverley Care. It’s an exciting time to join the organisation in the wake of a successful rebrand and launch of a newly redeveloped website for the organisation. We have also just recently launched a new national campaign, #GetToZero, designed to show everyone in Scotland how they can play their part and help us get to zero new HIV transmissions by 2030.

This year is also the first year since Covid that we have a full schedule of outreach and engagement events like Prides across the country, and we will be out in force fundraising over the Edinburgh Fringe as we are the charity partner for the Pleasance Theatre Trust.

We are a growing and ambitious charity with a focus on ensuring we meet the 2030 target whilst also making sure that everyone in Scotland living with HIV or hep C gets the support they need.

This role will have a chance to get involved in every aspect of our marketing, communications and policy work and will also work closely with our colleagues in the fundraising team. It is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to establish a career in the third sector.
