Mission: Maximise sexual health in the UK, and minimise the spread of HIV and STIs, by encouraging people to value their sexual health and by leading innovation to increase access to local sexual health services.
Empower everyone living with HIV in the UK to maximise ...
Terrence Higgins Trust is at the forefront of the fight against HIV and improving the nation’s sexual health. Our vision is a world where people with HIV live healthy lives free from prejudice and discrimination, and good sexual health is a right and reality for all.
We're a courageous organisation:
We formed in 1982 following the death of Terry Higgins, one of the very first to die from an AIDS related illness in the UK. Since then, we’ve acted boldly and passionately to meet the challenges of this ever-changing epidemic. Now as the UK’s leading HIV and sexual health charity, we are looking to take new, innovative steps to drive forward our ambition.
We're an ambitious organisation:
We are working to end HIV transmission in the UK, help people to live with HIV and improve the nation’s sexual health. It’s a critcal moment - for the first time
our goals are within reach. We are working together with our beneficiaries and partners to make the end of HIV transmission a reality. Through digital technology, and bold, new ways of reaching those in need, we will reduce transmission, improve sexual health and help people living with HIV thrive.
We're a people organisation:
Terrence Higgins Trust is its people- our beneficiaries are at the core of our organisation, driving how we work, where we work and what we do. Our
talented staff create our innovative and engaging programmes, many of whom are also living with HIV. Our passionate supporters and volunteers enable us
to do everything we can to make a difference to so many lives.
Terrence Higgins Trust makes people’s lives better every day. Come and do the most meaningful work of your career.
Whatever your story, we want to hear from you.
Ambitious: We believe individuals, and communities, are a force for positive change. We drive ourselves, and others, to make things happen.

I have been working at Terrence Higgins Trust full-time (More than a year)
This is a charity that has such history in the HIV and sexual health sector, I'm so pleased to be a part of it.
Love getting involved in all the events that take place - Pride, London Marathon, etc.
Really interesting work with hugely committed colleagues.
There have been redundancies recently which have left some people bitter and worried about the future.
Having to think creatively about income generation in a time of government cutbacks.
Advice to Management
Involve us all more in the detail of the transformation programme.
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Terrence Higgins Trust (London, England) in September 2015.
I applied online and was shortly contacted for an interview. The process was fast and easy, however I found the job position poorly described and I had trouble getting a clear idea of what my responsibilities would entail. Before the interview I was asked to put together a screening plan presentation. How can you do that when you barely know what area you're supposed to work in? Furthermore, I found the questions during the interview to be broad and generic to the point that it was hard to give full and valuable answers.
