Project Coordinator, Black Health Matters project
The Love Tank CIC (PrEPster’s parent company) is looking for a dynamic, engaged and enthusiastic person to join our team as the Phase 1 Project Coordinator for our Black Health Matters project.
The recent attention brought by COVID and the Black Lives Matters movements to the lives of Black* people has shone a light on the inequalities experienced by Black communities.
The post holder will build connections and coalitions with lived experience leaders and organisations from a broad range of health issues impacting on Black communities to identify common threads and solutions to better addressing these health needs.
The project aims to work directly with people from Black communities and organisations addressing a range of health conditions, using a peer-led community mobilisation approach. As this is a lived experience project, applicants will need to demonstrate how Black health inequalities have impacted on their immediate communities.
This post is only available to people from of Black African, Black Caribbean and Black British heritage as permitted under the Equality Act 2010
*Black is defined as being of Black African, Black Caribbean and Black British heritage
