Would you like to help make a difference to people’s lives and be part of the elimination of an infectious disease? 

Do you have experience of being in a supportive or advice giving role, ideally with people with complex needs or marginalised/disadvantaged groups? We are looking for a passionate and highly skilled Helpline Information and Support Officer who has excellent communication and organisational skills.

You will be providing specific support and information on hepatitis C to a wide range of people, including medical professionals and the general public.

We, The Hepatitis C Trust, are actively involved in working with the ongoing Infected Blood Inquiry as a Core Participant. Due to this a larger proportion of our work is now focused on supporting those who were infected in this way and the additional complex issues they face.

A lived experience of hepatitis C is essential but we would particularly welcome applications from anyone who has been specifically infected or affected by contaminated blood.

Please download the documents below for further project information and application details.

The deadline to apply for this position is midnight on Sunday 6th October 2019
