Health Promotion Co-ordinator Community Engagement & Outreach
An exciting career opportunity for an enthusiastic and self-motivated health promoter to work as part of THT South’s dynamic Brighton based health promotion team. You will be delivering health promotion interventions, working with individuals from at-risk communities with the aim of reducing HIV risk and maximising sexual health.
The focus of your work will be the planning and delivery of outreach work with people from Terrence Higgins Trust’s target communities. In particular, you will co-ordinate the delivery of direct contact and resource based sexual health promotion and HIV prevention activity taking place outside of the office base including line management of a small team of outreach officers and volunteers working across Brighton & Hove.
You will also lead on the coordination and planning of community health promotion and fundraising events e.g. World AIDS Day, Brighton LGBT Pride, Trans Pride, Brighton&Hove STI testing week and National HIV Testing Week.
You’ll have a good understanding of the issues relating to HIV infection and poor sexual health and also knowledge of and sensitivity to the needs of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men and other higher risk adults in relation to HIV and sexual health promotion.
Terrence Higgins Trust was set up in 1982 following the death of its namesake Terry Higgins, who was one of the very first people to die of an AIDS-related illness in the UK. As an organisation we are always aiming to ensure we are always meeting the needs of people affected by HIV and poor sexual health.
The Transformation and Operations team sits at the heart of our charity. Made up of our Income Generation department that works to find every pocket willing to give to our cause and our services that deliver to our many beneficiaries, this is the sharp end of where our passion and focus to end HIV and improve sexual health come together.
