The Hepatitis C Trust develops projects nationally where peers use their lived experience of injecting drug use and hepatitis C, to provide education and training, increase hepatitis C awareness, and access to testing and treatment for people living with hepatitis C.
Are you looking for a new and exciting challenge? Do you have experience of working within drug services and with volunteers? Have you been affected by hepatitis C or have you supported anyone who has hepatitis C?
We are looking for self-motivated individuals who can work on their own, engage with stakeholders and have a desire to make a difference in promoting hepatitis C awareness among services and affected communities, and by increasing access to hepatitis C treatment and care. We are looking for a passionate and skilled Peer Coordinator who has excellent communication and organisational skills along with line management experience.
Working in partnership with hepatitis C clinical teams, drug and alcohol services and homeless service providers, the post will coordinate delivery of educational workshops, hepatitis C testing in community settings and ensure that service users are referred and supported through hepatitis C treatment and care. Working under the guidance of Northern Regional Manager, this post will continue the development of the project, line manage Peer Support Leads and volunteers and continue recruiting and coordinating peers across South Yorkshire.
We require a good standard of education, willingness to travel and welcome creativity and innovation in all our work. We are a patient-led organisation – you will be working in an environment where the patient/service user/client is placed at the centre of all that you do. This post will require extensive travel across the region and the post holder is required to hold a clean driving licence and have their own vehicle for work related travel.
