Joe Rich

Operations Director

I joined NZAF from a background in retail and consumer marketing, and I enjoy the challenge (and reward) of applying my experience in the non-profit sector.

I love being part of an organisation that embraces diversity, is very good at what it does, and is continually evolving. NZAF’s HIV programmes, services and advocacy are built on a solid foundation of evidence and best practice; it's a privilege to be working with such incredible people to make it all happen.

The communities we serve are highly involved in the work we do. People really care about what we’re doing and put a lot of trust in us. It creates pressure at times but when we get it right it’s a great feeling.

I love my job because I get to be myself and have fun at work. Every day is a different challenge. I’m part of a success story and I’m part of a team that is working toward a world without HIV/AIDS.
