The Hepatitis C Trust has developed projects nationally whereby peers use their lived experience of injecting drug use and hepatitis C, to provide education and training to increase awareness of hepatitis C, reduce stigma, and promote access to testing and treatment for people living with hepatitis C.
Do you have experience of working in 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 a passionate and skilled Peer Coordinator with excellent communication and organisational skills. We require a good standard of education and welcome creativity and innovation in all our work.
Working as part of a growing team providing services to people living with hepatitis C, this post will expand delivery of the Hepatitis C peer project, supervising and coordinating the activities of the Peer Support Leads across the West Midlands (covering Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall, Stoke and Staffordshire) to recruit and support volunteer peers and raise awareness and proactively increase hepatitis C testing, treatment, and care for marginalised communities.
This post will require extensive travel across the region, and it is desirable for the post holder to hold a clean driving licence and have their own vehicle for work related travel.
