NAT is the UK's policy charity dedicated to transforming society's response to HIV. We provide fresh thinking, expertise and practical resources. We champion the rights of people living with HIV and campaign for change.

This year we are celebrating our 30th birthday, and running the campaign, 'For 30 years you've helped us fight HIV. Now let's end it.' We are looking back over the progress that has been made over the last 30 years in the fight against HIV and then looking forward to ensure that we can end it before another 30 years passes by.

Our flagship event for the campaign will take place on 30 November, the day before World AIDS Day. We have secured a venue and now need an events officer to help us make this an excellent event that people will talk about for years to come.

You will be working on all areas of the event including the logistics, the guest list, securing prizes for auction, and liaising with our speakers. We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic and confident, with excellent organisational skills. As we are a small team, you must be able to use your initiative and manage your time effectively during a very busy (yet fun) time.

Reporting to the Fundraising Manager, you will be crucial to the success of this high-profile event.

NAT is a small but dynamic charity working on a wide range of issues that affect people living with HIV, focusing on five strategic goals:

Effective HIV prevention in order to halt the spread of HIV
Early diagnosis of HIV through ethical, accessible and appropriate testing
Equitable access to treatment, care and support for people living with HIV
Enhanced understanding of the facts about HIV and living with HIV in the UK
Eradication of HIV-related stigma and discrimination.
