NAZ is looking to recruit an enthusiastic and dynamic individual to take up the role of HIV Peer Support Worker with people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities who are living with HIV.  

 

The focus of the role is supporting individuals 1-to-1 through casework, referrals and information; and through running an HIV support group. We aim to increase retention in care and achieve improvements in wellbeing for service users. The role also includes developing links within the community and statutory services, and running awareness-raising and information sessions to groups to build confidence, promote self-esteem and develop individual capacity to live healthily.

 

The role is normally based in NAZ’s office in Hammersmith, London with frequent travel to locations in Greater London, though includes some working from home at present due to COVID-19.

                                       

Due to our delivery of sexual health services to predominantly Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic service users, this post is only open to people who have Black, Asian, or another minority ethnicity (or dual/multiple heritage including this). (Exempt under the Equality Act 2010 Schedule 9, part 1).

 

We welcome applications from people with lived experience of issues affecting people who are living with HIV.

 

About NAZ

 

NAZ is the sexual health charity dedicated to people experiencing better sexual health. We do this because there’s a big gap in the sexual health outcomes of Black, Asian and Racially Minoritised communities compared to the general population. Everything we do works to reverse this trend.

 

Our evidence-based interventions are designed to enable those with the greatest risk of poor sexual health outcomes to have fulfilling sexual lives, understand how to access the right local service and ultimately to support better physical, mental and sexual health outcomes.
