Frontline AIDS is seeking a dynamic new Communications Lead to spearhead our external communications work at a critical time for Frontline AIDS and for the global HIV response.
The successful candidate will have strong expertise and insights into how to communicate with impact through a broad mix of external channels, including web, social, publications and through the media.

We’ve been on the frontline of the world’s response to HIV and AIDS for over 27 years, working with marginalised people who are denied HIV prevention and treatment simply because of who they are and where they live.
We know we can make the difference. We know that together we are greater than AIDS.
Our cultural philosophy is that Action Makes the Difference. The attitudes and approach we take at work are guided by our organisational values – Freethinker, Inspired by Difference and Firestarter – and their associated behaviours. Knowing what is expected of us every day helps Frontline AIDS to be a great place to work.
