Online Volunteer Work and Skills Mentor

Work and Skills Online is a personal development programme aiming to provide people living with HIV who are unemployed with online learning modules, online peer support, online mentoring and support to access local training and volunteer opportunities.

The Online Employment Mentor is an integral part of the support structure for each individual, providing space online for the participant to ask questions, set goals and plan how to achieve them, explore work and volunteering ideas, reflect on their online learning, reflect on their volunteering and skills and gain feedback on job/volunteering applications and interview technique.

We’re particularly interested in recruiting female mentors and mentors from Black, Asian and other minority communities.

The organisation

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 Statutory Services directorate works in partnership with Public Health Commissioners, Local Authorities, NHS Trusts and commissioning bodies, along with a broad range of healthcare professionals, organisations and service users, to improve the sexual health and wider wellbeing of adults and young people throughout England, Scotland and Wales. We achieve this by designing and delivering innovative, high quality sexual health and HIV services that best meet the needs of local communities and commissioners. It also continually seeks to develop relationships with strategic partners to increase the organisation’s reach across the UK and to continually improve service quality in accordance with national standards and local requirements.
