Thank you for your interest in the position of Chief Executive at NAT.

NAT’s vision is for a world where HIV does not stand in the way of health, dignity, and equality. Our expertise, research, and advocacy secure lasting change to the lives of people living with and at risk of HIV. And we won’t stop until everyone affected by HIV can live their fullest life possible.

In the 4 decades since AIDS and HIV were first recognised advances in treatment , care and prevention mean that millions of people can live with HIV instead of dying of AIDS, and bringing the pandemic to an end is within our grasp. Yet these benefits are far from universally accessible, barriers exist for many, and HIV associated stigma and discrimination remain obstinate and sometimes lethal roadblocks.

NAT is a small organisation, with a big impact, acting quickly and flexibly in today’s ever-changing external environment. We have an outstanding reputation and a strong track record of brave and collaborative leadership.

We base our work on four concepts – stopping new infections, protecting the rights of everyone living with and at risk of HIV, championing the needs and voices of people who are often unheard together with driving engagement and activism to change attitudes to HIV.

Thanks to NAT’s leadership England has a national HIV action plan and government has pledged to end new HIV infections in England by 2030. Our work on pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) has ensured that powerful prevention tools are now in the hands of many more people who can benefit. NAT, with partners, is leading the development of the “HIV Confident” Chartermark to tackle HIV associated stigma.

We are looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic, strategic, and collaborative Chief Executive who will be the public face of the organisation and take NAT into the future.  We are seeking someone who can work closely and productively with our board of trustees and key stakeholders.

Although the successful candidate may not necessarily have a background in or in-depth policy knowledge of HIV, they will be committed to our vision and values. They will need excellent presentation, negotiation, influencing and representational skills and the ability to exemplify inclusive collaborative leadership.

The successful candidate will have a once in a lifetime opportunity – with the global commitment to see the end of the HIV epidemic by 2030. Our next Chief Executive has the chance to play a central role in delivering this for the UK. If that is something you feel passionately about, we want to hear from you.
