This is a critically important new role within one of Scotland’s best-known charities at a crucial time in our history as we work towards hepatitis C elimination and zero HIV transmissions.

In this role, you will lead on our work with Minority Ethnic communities, extending our work to reach new communities with messages around sexual health and HIV prevention, treatment and care in Scotland, while also developing our existing work in new and innovative ways. You will demonstrate that there are no ‘hard to reach’ communities and take the lead on how to best reach different communities to help Scotland get to zero HIV transmissions.

You will shape the charity’s work with BAME communities for all stakeholders including service users, professional partners (including the NHS and Scottish Government) and media. You will work closely with wider Waverley Care staff to make sure that all communities are represented and have a voice in service delivery and development.

You will work closely with the Chief Executive, Senior Management Team, and Management Team to ensure the charity is at the forefront of working with Minority Ethnic communities around sexual health and HIV, and will represent Waverley Care on these issues at high level meetings, conferences and public events.

We’re looking for a highly dynamic and motivated person who can bring the following attributes to the role:

  • Experienced and confident across all aspects of community outreach, including research and/or engagement
  • Ability to lead on the development of our work, both existing projects and new projects, in innovative ways and using your own initiative
  • Confidence to represent the charity in a range of different meetings, including national meetings, government meetings and at conferences
  • Develop strong working relationships across a range of operational teams and stakeholders who work with us to deliver services
  • An interest in our work and the life changing impact it has

Given the nature of this role, it is a genuine occupational requirement that candidates for this post should identify as being from a Minority Ethnic community.
