Job Opportunities

The New Zealand AIDS Foundation (NZAF) has been at the forefront of the community response to HIV in Aotearoa for more than 30 years.

In response to the AIDS epidemic in the early 1980s and originally known as The AIDS Support Network, we joined the fight for the decriminalisation of homosexuality and for the rights of those living with HIV and the broader Rainbow community.

With the same passion and commitment as those who came before us, NZAF is still mobilising and empowering communities affected by HIV to prevent transmission, reduce stigma and maximise health and well-being.

If you want to be one of the driving forces behind the elimination of new HIV transmissions in New Zealand by 2025, then read on to see our current vacancies.

Do you have a proven track record of client-focused work and a real desire to create welcoming and safe spaces for those most affected by HIV?  Do you want to support our target populations including Gay and Bisexual Men (GBM) to access and engage with HIV & STI testing and therapeutic services to meet their unique needs?

When you’re not testing you will be responsible for creating a welcoming environment for people visiting Te Toka - one that is comfortable, safe and inclusive for our priority populations, particularly GBM. You will also be required to deliver general administrative duties to help support the Te Toka team, and other NZAF administrators to meet operational deliverables and goals.
